    He or She is about 6 months old and I have not heard or seen he/she trying to crow. I really hope its a hen. Time will tell but I dont want to wait till spring to find out....

    I sure hope so

    The guinea's get picked on more than she does. I want to buy some Silkie chicks this spring, instead of hatching them out. Hopefully they will help me hatch Guinea eggs
