    This is my (supposed) roo, Godzilla. He is 5 months old and has never crowed. Any thoughts? [​IMG]

    Could you get close up on his face? It's hard to tell with that pic

    x2 on what the other poster said, get a good head shot. Also, silkies are ridiculously hard to sex anyway, and they mature slowly (my roo didn't crow until he was 8 months old)
