    Hi guys just adopted a new silkie to keep company to Agatha. The farm we got it from told us she's 4months old and she's a female but now I'm wondering as she has a very deep voice and has a different tail from my other silkie so I'm wondering if it's a male. I hope you can reassure me. Thanks

    Are you referring to the bit above the beak between the eyes?

    Oh her doesn't look like this at all but she's only 4months. I'm just waiting for my wife to take the picture as she's not used to be picked up yet and wiggle around when I pick her up
