    I thought I had a rooster, but something laid two eggs and the only other chicken I have is the silkie/cochin in the background who has a much bigger comb and is younger...

    Is this a hen? Is she considered pretty poor quality for a silkie? [​IMG] She's just a pet so it's okay.

    Pet quality for sure. I would say hen. [​IMG]
