    I thought my silkie was a hen. Until recently the wattle grew huge! This morning she tried to crow. I think she was born in May. [​IMG][/IMG]

    Awww, thank you. I figured. We aren't allowed roos in my city so it looks like I'll have to rehome him. I'll be a bit sad even though he's kind of mean to my girls.

    Those are really well feathered feet - looks like he is wearing Ug boots.
