This is Bo.2 months olds. Yesterday when I turned the coop light on this one let out a loud, course, and really poor excuse for a cock a doodle doo. Thing is Bo was hopefully a hen; as the other two we have. This morning… it happened again. Now I have read if there is no rooster a hen may crow. Bo does not look any different what so ever from Zoey. Can’t compare to Pyewacket because that’s a showgirl. But I really thought if any was the dominant it would b Zoey. But Bo just took that role recently. Pyewacket is not really confrontational she is smaller.I have looked for all the sure signs of male, but Bo does not seem to look any different than Zoey. Could they both be roosters ? And Pye the only hen? Or do I still have hope for the three being hens still? Thank you ahead of time. I do have a shirt video but can’tfind a vid upload button.

Welcome! Hmm, I think you have a roo here, but can't say on the other one. It's very difficult to tell with Silkies as I'm sure you know, haha. if you have a video, you can upload it to YouTube or another video hosting site and share the link.

Pippin's easy guide to silkie sexing

Pippin's easy guide to silkie sexing

Hello there! When I hatched my own silkies, I studied and studied about how to sex them. I read that it was almost impossible to sex them, and that you had to wait for a crow or an egg. Raising and watching them helped me pick out certain traits that only belong to roosters or hens. These...

Pyewacket hears Bo cock-a-doodle first time. Freaks out.
