I already know that Lahnee is a rooster, he has been crowing for two weeks!

Loonah:




I'm worried about Loelah, she's so much smaller than the rest of the chickens! Do you think there's something wrong with her? Or could she just be petite?
Loelah:

Silkies are the only darn chickens I cant recognize the gender.

I think the first one is a cockerel though.

Lahnee looks like your only roo. Loelah appears to be younger than your others, that's all.
Cuties all around.

Thanks guys, I was worried about Loelah but I'm glad to hear you guys think that she's just younger! Hopefully Lahnee's the only roo!

I think perhaps that Loelah may be only 7 or 8 weeks old? My silkies looked like that at 7 weeks.
