    This is "Blue"...We're hoping for a girl. Whatcha think? He/she is the biggest chick and bullies all the others. Tries to mount sometimes. How can you tell with Silkies which is which before they either crow or lay an egg?

    It's a silky- they hold their gender secret until the hormones start raging, or the first crow squeaks out. I kept hoping for a girl, but I have KikoMan 1,2 & 3, and at 6 months they just now are active participants in the morning rooster races. They live w/ LF hens who run faster.
