Well I just got baby chicks I don't know the gender but am hoping no roo's. I have 2 videos on youtube.com
Could anyone tell me if I have roos or Girls.
Is it true that silkie bantam roos crow less and quiter.
Could I teach them not to crow at an early age.

Checked it out and it is way too early to tell if they are roos or not and I don't believe you can teach a roo not to crow. It is their natural instinct. Good Luck

I will let you know that, that statement is false. I had a silkie roo who screamed/crowed 24/7. Every hour he crowed. He was my gentle baby but he was a loud mouth.

I'm sorry to say that it is WAY too early to tell the sex of your chicks. I can take several months before you will be able to tell, even then you may have to wait until they either crow or lay an egg. Not all silkies are loud crowers. Several of mine are somewhat quiet and I have yet to have a complaint from the neighbors.

Oh, and I just wanted to let you know that your "gray" chick is actually a blue


Good luck with your babies!
