    Now what kind of Thanksgiving answer is that [​IMG]

    Thats what I thought too but was hoping he was a she.... I live in Los Angeles and can't have a boy. Boo hoo hoo ..... Now when to get rid of him... Maybe I'll wait until he crows as he is so attached to his 3 best friend hens.

    Thought I'd post the results for reference and to help others trying to sex their silkies....

    Well you guys were 100% correct. Tiny got his big boy lungs today ... So boy indeed.

    Hopefully he'll be a quiet rooster. I know wishful thinking..... I really don't want to have to give him away. :(

    Well maybe if your lucky he'll leave his mark with the hens and you'll have some chicks and a chance at a girl :)
