    Can someone please help me this is my thought to be female 5 1/2 month old Silkie Zoey. he/she has recently grown much faster and a much larger, HUGE comb and wattle. he/she has what I think to be streamers and the male tail feathers. he/she is no where near as social as the other female and dislikes people. I'm not sure the only other rooster I have ever had was a huge Delaware that started crowing at a very young age. these two are also the first Silkies I have ever owned. we started off with six Silkie chicks (one being severely disabled and dying very young) and are down to two.no crows that I know of and if it is a Roo I will rename him Zeus. here are the pictures
    [​IMG] older from pic 2 months ago ignore me I look horrific its hard to look good while an angry chicken wont hold still for the picture
    [​IMG] todays pictures
    [​IMG] not very good but it was the only ones where he/she looked straight at the camera

    Does anyone know when he will start to crow, grow spurs, and mate the hens?

    It is indeed a rooster. I am pretty sure you would just get a bunch of mixed colors, but if you want ask on the silkie thread. They would know for sure
