    I've got a chicken named Marshmallow too! Her full name is Roasted Marshmallow and one of her nicknames is Marsha (Marsha Marsha Marsha)
    I think its a hen, especially since roosters crow even at a young age.

    Mine wouldn’t crow, since I have 2 full-size Roosters and Marshmallow would be very intimidated.

    I'll bet! I've always wanted to own silkies! I've heard they're sweet lap birds!
