    So I've had these two for about two years, but I've been keeping them at my uncle's so I don't see them day to day. I'm almost positive the white one was broody last year..but now she looks kinda like a rooster and I just heard and saw her crow. The grey one I just gave a bath. He's the one we thought was a rooster but now I'm not sure. Can someone help please? [​IMG]

    I don't have experience with Silkies...but they both look like roosters to me. Pictures of the grey one dry would be good.

    And they look like a Silkie mix, but that could be wrong too.
