Hi there fellow chicken fans! My husband and i are brand new to the chicken thing, we just adore our 6 feathered friends! Like many of you though, we are dreading the possibility that one or more of our 'girls' may be little roos, as we aren't able to keep one should it happen. So would love your opinions! i know it may be too early to tell, especially with the silkies. they are all different ages though. we have 4 silkies and 2 cochins. audrey, cochin, 10 weeks old (i am sure she is a hen): jude, cochin, 8 weeks old: Gus, silkie, 10 weeks old, again i am sure she's a hen: Eddie(Edna), silkie, 6 weeks old, I have a feeling a roo. More comb growth than the others, and also grew VERY quickly and is the same size as Molly the 8 week old. Also very vocal, but a gutless wonder. Molly, silkie, 8 weeks old, pretty sure a hen: And LuLu, the baby of them all, is about 5 weeks old: I know some may be too young to tell, and the photos aren't close up either so that doesn't help. but any input is appreciated. in the meantime, think girly thoughts! thanks a bunch!
