    Anyone want to make a guess as to its sex??? I had to trade my rooster since my neighbors were complaining. The poultry farm gave me a silkie which they promised was a hen. Just wanted to get your opinions! Thanks [​IMG]

    I'm not sure it looks like it has alot of hard feathers in its tail.

    But my guess and only a guess I'd say hen.

    Nice poof on that head there!

    I'd say hen, but it's a guess.

    yay! thank god! I'd hate to get attached only to find out she's a rooster. Thanks for your opinions - I feel more confident in your guesses than the farmer's opinion. [​IMG]
