I purchased two silkie chicks last month who were so attached at the hip they had to be sold together. Now that their poofs are coming in on their heads I can tell one is a boy (he is also bigger and his feathers are coming in different). I went and got a new standard chick in hopes to ease the pain in 6-8 months when the boy will start crowing but now that chick is just as attached to him! I live in the city and you are not allowed to have roosters, does anyone know how to make a rooster not crow? ~I've heard you can keep their coop in the shed overnight and into the morning to trick them and that you can get them fixed.
