Partridge Silkie--Boy or Girl???

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by citychickinthecountry, Jul 2, 2010.

  1. Is my Partridge Silkie a boy or girl? I think she's a girl, but I want to be sure since I've had such bad luck with all my other girls being boys. [​IMG] She is almost 18 weeks and hasn't (obviously!) laid any eggs yet.

    I am posting two pictures of her since I couldn't get a good picture of her and wanted to show a picture of her face too.

    I have two partridge silkies... my roo just started crowing this morning, he is 20 week today... he has a pointy comb and waddles, has for many weeks. The female is developing hers now but no real "combs" like the roo.

    I have an inordinant number of roos too.... darn!

    I say hen...

    My silkie hen took a year before she layed her egg. Looks like girl to me but there hard to tell.
