    So these 2 are the same age, 8 weeks. Yesterday we were in the yard with our other 2 chicks and we all heard a very distinctive crow come from the coop. These 2 were the only ones inside so it came from one of them...the easter egger/mutt is Beyonce and the silkie (also kind of a mutt) is 2Pek. Please weigh in!

    silkie x looks like the culprit (looking at streamers coming off his crest).

    The silkie is a boy.
    The EE is a pullet, the breast feathers show it.

    I agree, I'm thinking the silkie cross is the cockerel

    Ahh my tiny dark prince. He and my other 8 week old roo are always sparring a bit so makes sense. Hopefully they can work out their differences so we can keep them both. Honestly I think the other cockerel is terrified of him and he is twice the size!
