    I have 3 young silkies... the first is slightly older, just over 4 months old, and the rooster I had when she was young was sure she was a "she" and tried breeding her a few times when he was lonely... lol I'm hoping he knew what he was doing! Although she was only about 6-8 weeks old at the time, and he was REALLY lonely... :p Here's the first one in question:
