    OK....I need experts advice [​IMG] I was feeling around for eggs tonight and as i reached around one of my supposed splash silkie squatted down thumping its feet like the girls do when they think they are going to be mated [​IMG] So i wonder......has anyone here had a young rooster do the squatty thing like the girls? I was so sure that they were all boys........the only one i questioned that might have been a girl was not even the one that squatted. So i am so hoping i was wrong......even though i hate being wrong......this would be a good one to be wrong about!!!!!! [​IMG]

    I've never seen a rooster squat before, so I would say it's a girl. I have Silkies that I'm still confused about. Darn these Silkies and their gender bending abilities!!!! [​IMG]

    They don't have gender bending abilities, they have MIND bending abilities. Think of it as a "Silkie Mind Trick". Can you tell the DH is a Star Wars fan?

    Western MA i now know i have 3 splash silkie roosters. They are almost perfect. Maybe they are....I'm no expert....but without big combs and/or waddles....i think they are more handsome than most. So i am going to keep one. The other 2 are going up for adoption. Here they are....I wont ship you gotta be driving distance. Email me if your interested.
