    I have 5 baby silkies in the house under light still. Not sure of the weeks, but they are not baby baby but still very young and remember Silkie now. Well one of them crowed this morning. I'm like what the [​IMG] With silkies I can not tell the sex until they crow or an egg pops out but I have never had one crow this young. Maybe he is gifted. [​IMG]

    Well, if you can catch him in the act, at least you won't have to wonder about his gender for the next 6 months. [​IMG]

    When we first heard it we thought something was wrong with one of them. Now Snakeman has been in there crowing at them trying to get the silkie to crow back. Now that is funny.

    Quote:I definately need to catch him in the act. Mayby Snakeman will with all the crowing he is doing with these babies. You got to get a mentle picture of all this. Snake has long hair, longer than mine and I have real long hair and he has a beard down to his belly button. He looks like he should be riding a Harley not sitting crowing at some baby silkies. [​IMG] I think I'm gonna ask for hush money from him.[​IMG] lol
