This little one is smaller than my known girl (same age), dainty, only a small bump for the comb, girlie in every way except it looks like it has streamers. Can some Silkie experts chime in please?

This one has not laid or crowed yet. I finally got a good pic of what I think could be streamers

These streamer looking feathers are really hard to see and photograph. Anyone ever had a hen with these types of feather?

Nope, females shouldn't have streamers. Are these all the same bird? The first one looks like a dark partridge pullet. But, that last picture very clearly shows streamers (and is a great picture of them). Streamers= boy.

All the same bird. She/he is so girlie in every way except the streamers. It has short, round feathers on the neck, didn't start growing a comb till about 6 months...this is a hatchery bird too. Haha, this one is tricky. Glad to see that one other person has a hen with streamers. I'll let you guys know when I find out.
