    can you also please let me know what characteristics to look for in a girl and a boy so when our 5 weeks old get older i will be able to tell. what makes this beauty look boy or girl i would like to learn so i can sex my little ones when they get a little older. he/she is the only survivor of a raccoon attack she is in a pen with a millie and 3 americaunas until the babies get bigger i was thinking girl because i do not see any streamers and i have not heard him/her crow yet but i know i could be wrong since i am new to silkies and sexing them.

    i do not like to bump but i also have another question about silkies how old are they usually before they crow or lay an egg i was told that they take longer than other chickens but i want to make sure.
