So my silkie is a couple of months old, can't find my calendar to remember for sure... If I had to guess I would say 4-5 months old. My silkie I "think" is a hen.. but I have no clue.. My other roo who is the same age has been crowing for 3-4 weeks, and I haven't heard a peep out of my silkie... and no one is laying... so I have no clue. Just curious what everyone else thought. I had read somewhere that if their top hat was swept backwards its most likely a roo.. so now I'm beginning to question my thoughts that it is a hen... I'll add a few pics of the silkie and a pic of my Cochin Bantam roo who is the same age, so you can see about how old they are. I don't know if this one will help or not... My Barred Cochin Bantam Roo (same age) So what do ya think?
