    Sadly, I have to get rid of one of my silkie, who keeps getting pecked on by the others. I've tried to wait it out a couple weeks, and there seems to be no change in their behavior. I would love to hear any thoughts on gender and/or sex! I was told it was a female, but she seems to have started getting a comb!

    That's what I was thinking, too. Thanks. I just needed some additional confirmation. Luckily, I have a few options for him. Poor little guy. He's the loneliest chicken in the world right now. [​IMG]

    I think he's around 12 weeks old. I just love him. He's such a sweet little chicken.
