Or is it still too early to tell? I was hoping for a female, but lately there have been a few signs and I'm not so sure. First and most obvious is the big, swept back mohawk, but it's still new and coming in and I don't know it will stay that way? But also when I let 'him' mingle with my quail, the males don't like him near the females and get rather aggressive but Big Bird fights right back. I figure a female would be more flighty and run away, right? It doesn't really matter, I'll love him just the same even if he can't give me eggs, but I'm very curious! I'd never even seen a Silkie until I saw BYC so I'm clueless to the signs.
