I have a Red Star, a Leghorn, a Golden Laced Wydanette, a Copper Maran, and 2 Silkies. I thought all were hens....surprise, this morning one of the Silkies crowed!!!!! I live in town and have close neighbors, I cannot have a rooster. I do not want to have him go, is there a way we can keep him from crowing? What happens if he mates with the other? I cannnot raise chicks, I have no room or time to riase chicks. I am in a panic, I think I need to have 2 Silkies for the company and the female is very attached and looks for the other. I biggest problem is the crowing, he cannot or we have to get rid of him.
