    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Hey there, I'm new to BYC and new to having backyard chickens.I don't have the best pics but in wondering if my fav. Girl HenriEtta James Bawkingsworth is a she or he. I have three silkies: one smoothe ( HenriEtta) one straight silkie and one sizzle. My smoothe silkie HenriEtta is the only one with a larger beak at the top of her head and she crowed one time I let her out. She or he hasn't done it since that one day and all my silkies have five toes so I am unsure how to check if he's a she or a he.[​IMG]

    To make an accurate guess, I need better photos. But it looks like it could be a rooster.

    I agree it could be a rooster but it also could be a hen from your pics. We need better pics of its comb to be able to make a better guess..

    The tall stance makes me think rooster. I'm not seeinig a lot of comb and wattle development though. For now, I'm going to guess rooster.
