    A couple months ago I posted some photos of this (I think) hen, and everyone unanimously thought it was a hen. I'm starting to wonder again that that "she" is older. She's 15 weeks old now. Do you still think she's a she? She's a cross between a silkie and RIR/game bird. Sorry I couldn't get a closer pic. She runs away from me!

    Yes, she's silkie X RIR/game bird. Sorry, I edited my original post to include that while you were responding!

    Thanks, frost. Yeah, I love her. I just wish she would stop sitting on top of the watering can and pooping all over it. It seems to be her favorite place. She doesn't like to hang around the other chickens and I think she goes there to get away.

    if you have something in there she can get up on that is higher than the water thing she will probably sit there instead, at least that's what I did with mine and it worked
