    My silkies are just over 4.5 months. Wanted to know what you think of their sexes.

    Here is my best friend, who I hope is a female so she will be kept (don't want to pay for roosters, giving way all but 1) Is it just me or is that crest ADORABLE?
    My guess: Female

    Another one, not crested but still cute!
    My guess: Female

    This one is fiestier with a different one (not shown, he crowed yesterday so sex confirmed)
    My guess: Male

    Also, some silkie questions:

    When do buff silkies lay?

    When do buff silkies go broody?

    Why do some buff silkies have crests and others don't?

    The first link was the one that crowed... what about the one that is at the bottom of my post now? Is he a cockerel as suspected
