I have what I think is a girl silkie in with two bantam cochins, a boy and a girl. They are all about six months old. The male cochin has already started crowing. I have been thinking the silkie is a girl, but the other day she was fighting with the cockerel. She also has darker feathers on her neck and top of her tail. Her crest is rounded, but there seem to be feathers coming out the back of it. She looks nothing like my other silkie rooster, who is a year old. His crest feathers are "slicked back", and his comb is really big. I don't need another boy, and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas about this. If she was a boy, wouldn't she have started crowing by now? I will try to get pictures soon. Thanks!
