My silkies hatched 4 December, and one of them has started to crow. One of the others who I thought was a male because it started "fighting" at 10 days old, and s/he developed a red walnut comb recently. However, when my other hens lay eggs and do their calling, this silkie joins in and sounds just like the other hens. My other silkies are very quiet with soft voices. Do roos ever sound like loud hens? It was loud, this cawing. When roos get loud do they only crow or can they caw prior to developing a sort of crow?
