I wanted to share my condolences...

Born 6/5/2013. Started crowing this week 10/513.
Thanks a lot for the info. I was hoping you could help me out. I have a pair of silkies both of them crow but I did a little research and found out that silkies hen are know to crow (I have a bantam hen who does that too). So my silkies, the rooster have a longer tail and is bigger and have a tall posture. The hen is more docile and would make sounds that hens normally do. Here are some pictures to help you identify whether is a hen or not thanks!!! This is the hen, little comb and lots of feathers in the head This is the rooster, taller and has a bigger comb.
Thank you! That is incredibly detailed and helpful! My only silkie is 5 weeks old, so I can't tell yet. It does "purr" when I carry it around with me, so I'm guessing it might be a pullet. It's impossible to tell at this age. The last Lagshan roo was easy. He started trying to make a strangled gargling rat stepped on under water noise by the time he was 10 days out of the egg. Of course, he announces loudly to the whole world that he is the king of the flock. I hatched this silkie in an incubator, and I don't think it is ever going to be outside with the rest of them. It might be too cold or the others are too big for such a tiny thing to be out there.
Love this thread! Wondering if I could have some help sexing my 4 month old smooth silkie I see saddle feathers, and he/she holds themselves upright alot more that the girls, but the thing that confuses me is that he/she hasn't really started to developer a comb, and it's crest says girl. Any thoughts?? [VIDEO][/VIDEO]
