    I just picked up some silkie hens from a breeder selling out. I got this one she says is 7 months old but she's not 100% sure its a pullet because she hasn't laid yet... Any ideas??? I know the black one is a hen because the two babies came free with her..

    Also.. What color is she??

    looks to be splash colored. You can also post on the "Silkie thread."

    I'm leaning toward cockerel because of crest - not written in stone though
