I have a 21 week old buff silkie that had all its poof feathers pulled out when I tried to introduce it to a new pen of banties. Before the de-poofing, sometimes I would think I saw streamers, then other times I would think I just imagined it. There has been no crowing, no egg, and the comb and wattles are very small. When I put it in the new pen, the Blue Roo mounted Silkie about 4 times, then ignore it until the top pullet started picking on it. Blue Roo kept putting himself between them to keep them seperated. Does this type of behavior tell me that my Silkie is a girl? Or are there any other physical clues to gender other than poof streamers? I really want to name Silkie since it is now in the isolation cage in my bathroom. It makes little coo sounds when I sit in there and talk to it. Poor baby doesnt need to get stuck with a horrible name like "the Silkie" or "baldy" or Mohawk for the rest of its life!
