    My silkies are 17 & 18 weeks old. The 2 oldest are the white & splash colored. The other 3 are 17 weeks. The white one has a red crown area (it is flat though). All the others are very black and flat. I had 2 other roosters that were 17 weeks that I could confirm as one crowed and the other boy had streamers galore. No one in this batch of 5 has crowed since they left, so I'm hoping that is a good sign.

    Sorry the pics. are so great and not the best views. They weren't being very photogenic for me LOL. Please tell me what you think.

    Really? Do you think if one were a rooster, he would be crowing by now, esp. since the other roosters are gone?

    I hope you're both right. Thanks!
