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

    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?

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

    I think the first one is a cockerel though.

    Loelah is probably a bantam.

    Lahnee looks like your only roo. Loelah appears to be younger than your others, that's all. [​IMG] 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.
