I have only just joined BYC and am finding the site wonderful, though a bit daunting as there is so much to see and do. I only have two silkie chickens, 4months old. I love them both, but would like to know if I have a Roo and a Hen, I am wishing that is what I have, but I have my doubts. They both look like Roosters. If anyone can help me I would appreciate it. Also they are both very skittish and I am unable to pick them up unless they are getting ready to roost for the night. When I go to pick them up they run away and I feel like a big meanie. So any advice on that subject would be great. Whatever my chooks are I love them to bits. Thanks Witchie.
