Ok so I have this splash silkie roo....well he had us guessing for quite some time, even had him entered as a hen in his first show! Finally he crowed! He has a large comb and streamers now so obviously a roo to anyone familiar with the breed. He crows quite a bit, but not that great, he has a raspy voice. He is growing spurs but small and close to his feet on the back side. He occasionally spars with his fellow rooster. At this time however I have never seen him drop his wring, side step or show much dominance. TODAY I say my other rooster mount him and appear to be mating with him and he let him! He even shook off like a hen does after the "act"! DO I have a he/she?? This is really strange, I have noticed some of my hens are laying unfertile eggs, with a two to six ratio! I have one hen that my other rooster LOVES so much that she is missing feathers, my guess is he is playing favorites and my splash roo is not mating at all.... anyone have a clue what might be going on?
