    I had a rooster, that I believe was a Silkie rooster but he looks so much different then any Silkie rooster I've seen. He is so big. I'm just curious if anyone knows maybe he is something different then I think. He is the same size as our drake Muscovys.
    Im trying to upload pictures but don't know how too.

    Hi and welcome to BYC! The Learning Centre is a great place to start off as it has loads of info on anything chicken. Joining your state thread (just type your state in the search box) will also put you in contact with other BYC members in your area.

    After a few posts, you'll be able to upload photos and then i am sure that one of the gender / breed gurus will be able to help you out.


    all the best
