Hey everyone! i recently purchased a Silkie chicken from a local farmer, however it was straight run, so im no sure whether its a hen or rooster. I do live in a neighborhood where i cannot own a rooster, so im hoping its a hen! Im keeping her as a pet, and so far within the 2 weeks of owning her, she already knows her name and follows me around like a lost puppy! Shes very sweet. Shes a black silkie (hopefully its a she!!!) and we are all calling it "penny" lol. Right now its about 4 weeks old. I know its really hard supposedly to determine the silkie's gender, But again, if anyone can help me out here with determining the gender id really appreciate it! ill post a picture or 2 of her if that helps.. THANKS EVERYONE!!
