    Hey I'm new here! I just purchased an adult silkie. I was told it was a female...now Im not so sure. I have had her/him for a few days and I am still confused. "Roy" doesnt seem to have any spurs yet and likes to cluck a lot, but also crowed once. I'm hoping for Roy to be a hen but I still love 'em if its a rooster.[​IMG]
    Thanks!!!
