So I mistakenly bought two D'Uccles (I was told that they were Silkies because of the feathered feet
Do you think my little girl is actually a girl? Or is she a roo?? I am so hoping she is a girl!
NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!If its only 4-5 weeks, then it's definitely a cockerel, not a pullet.
If you want a silkie there's a good way to tell a silkie apart from the other chickens. They actually have black skin. So if you brush their down feathers back, their skin is a blackish purplish color. Also, silkies have 5 toes. While nearly almost every chicken breed only has 4 toes.
Aww man I hope that isn't true for all chicks!! I have 2 that are super sweet and cuddly! What do you do when you get too many roos?Another thing I've noticed about my chicks in general, is the more friendly ones are usually the cockerels. The pullets are normally the ones to run frantically around the brooder box lol.
