    I have 4 silkie chickens as mentioned in my other post and i know that 2 of them are roosters and 1 is a hen but don't know about the other one. It has a visible comb and smaller wattle then the roosters while my hen has a really small wattle and comb so is the mysterious chicken a hen or rooster?

    I haven't name them yet so I would be open to any suggestions and after the posts I will tell you the top 4 names I think is best and will post them onto here. P.S. They are white silkies.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. Have you posted pics of your White Silkies on What Breed or Gender is This? at https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this? If not, I would definitely post their pics there and let our experts take a shot at their gender. If you want to post pics here, we can take a shot at their gender, as well as suggesting some names, and you can share your top 4 names with us. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck with your Silkies.

    You may also want to follow the "Silkie Thread," on BYC - you could put that name in the search box and it should pop up. You could get the opinion of several silkie breeders and learn more than we could possibly teach you
