I would like opinions on whether my chicks that are now 12 weeks are hen or roo. They look very different from each other. Yin is the black silkie. I think she is a hen. Yang is the buff silkie. I think this might be a roo.


Yin Yang
I hope so. Yang has longer tail feathers. The other night I put Yang in the coop and she started making the weirdest sounds. Haven't heard them since. Only time will tell for sure. I am not really attached to Yang either. She has always been more skiddish, independent. I also see the other chickens putting her in her place a lot. Another reason I think Yang maybe a roo.
