Folks, In May I got 8 day old Pet Silkies from a local farm. One by one they started crowing and I took them back to the farm. There was one that never crowed but, at least to me, "he" seemd so Roo-ish... he was at least 1/3 bigger than the others and he got a pretty good size red comb by about 8 weeks and I thought it looked like he was getting "streamers". However, he was always kind of shy and not very aggressive. He would let me pick him up and hold him and was really really sweet. Even tho he never crowed, I took him back because I was so sure... Today, I got a call that the Farm they went to really really thinks that"he" is a girl. "he" is still a few weeks away from laying and egg but they said "his" behaviour is very hen-like. They said the way "he" acts around the Roos and the way the Roos act around "him" makes them think "he" is actually a girl. They said "he" talks like a girl and is getting more feminine every day. Here are some pictures that are at least 2 weeks old (14 or 15 weeks old). By looking at these pictures, does anyone see a possible hen. Its important because I only have one hen left and she is really lonely. I would love to bring "him" back but don't have much time to decide... I don't have any really good pictures of "him" but I thought I would at least try! This is the last picture ... "he" is the light grey one in the middle "he" is walking on the branch I think this is the only close up I have of "his" face - its not very good.
