    Also this silkie. Hoping it is a hen!! If not, I have 5 out of 6 assorted silkies that are fellas. :( I have 4 other confirmed roos in the silkie batch, all but 1 of them are crowing. This one isn't and I just can't tell if it's a he or a she. Can anyone out there take a guess? Just praying out of the 6 of them I have at least 2 girls!!!![​IMG]
