    I have this photos on another post about two of my roosters love for each other, and someone mention that this silkie might be a hen and not a rooster as I suspected. Can you tell me what it is?

    I'm no expert (at all), but the streamers make me think rooster.

    Quote:Thank you for explaining what the streamers are, I've seen that word several times on here but I had no idea what it was.
