    Roosters are illegal in my city. I recently bought 4 chicks from tractor supply. Days have gone by and I've noticed one chick is bossy and it looks a tad different from the rest. I don't know if I'm being paranoid or what. I'm a first time chick mom and i really would like to know if there's anyone out there that has had succes in sexing silkie chicks. What should I look for?

    From what I understand silkies are rather hard to sex until they start crowing or laying.
