    One of my 8wk old silkies has always been larger then the rest and today she/he let out this weird crow sort of sound:( This chicken also looks different then the other two. Could I have a rooster on my hands?? Thanks in advance!

    Looks like a male to me. Hens don't get such large wattles at this age. And, if you heard it crowing, its definitely a rooster. Hens rarely crow, and don't crow when they are this young.

    Thanks for the help! I agree,I really feel like it's a rooster too. Darn, we are not allowed to have roosters in our city so this little guy will have to be rehomed[​IMG]
