    I have three silkies that are 7 weeks old. I'm wondering when they roos will start making their "cock-a-doodle-doo" if I have any? (which I'm guessing I do). Or any other way to sex them at or around this age?

    Thanks!

    I am new to this too, I have silkies and my roo crowed at about 9 weeks but that was only one of them, I have 4 I think? They are so hard to tell.
