    This little silkie/serama mix had me thinking it was a boy when it turned red pretty early (around 8 weeks maybe?! I can't remember...might have been a lot later than that.) Anyway, it's almost 6 months old now and shows no signs of crowing or rooster feathering...but isn't laying either. What do you think? These are a month old but it still looks the same. Very friendly and inquisitive little bird!

    That's what I thought. I've never had seramas, do they redden up early? She's been red for at least a month now.

    pullet. By now she probably would have started getting saddle feathers if she was a boy. I love the little tuft [​IMG]
