    It was sold to me as a hen. It's from a June 2010 hatch.

    Gaited thinks it's a roo. I don't know what to think. I couldn't feel spurs.

    The one in the very front is the one in question...

    I'd place my money on it being a rooster.

    Okay ! Thank you everyone !

    Is that why when I try to introduce them to my rooster all they do is fight ?

    Do silkies & bantam cochin roosters get spurs ?

    I am going to disagree I say its a hen. Definitely a SilkieX. You are asking about the same bird in all three pics correct?

    Well then I am going against the group and saying its a girl. Her coloring seems odd for a roo and for being 6 months old I figured you would see saddle feathers by now and a much larger comb.
