    I was told she was a hen but upon reading more about silkis I am not sure.... She/he seems to have streamers and a pretty large comb. But I am yet to hear him/her crow or see him chase around any hens. She/he is quite shy and to herself.

    If he's still young it might take him a while to start crowing and being interested in the ladies. I once had a rooster that didn't crow until he was almost a year old!
