    Wow, you should already know....My cathryn walden/hattrick/amber waves I can already tell. The males should have long feathers coming out the top of their heads, they are 4 months. Put up a picture and I might can help. The males legs are also bigger if that helps any.

    Nope, no crow no egg yet. I do have an alpha roo in that flock, so a silkie roo (if I have one) may be too intimidated to crow.
    I've posted pics before. Need to get some new ones, but they won't cooperate. Impossible to tell if they have streamers or not, because I gave them haircuts for clearer vision.

    Sorry chicken head. Didn't mean to hijack.
