    I have 4 silkies and one showgirl, I know the one is a roo because he crows and has, since he was 10 weeks old. I have 2, 17 week old silkies that I don't know if they are male or female, if they are male wouldn't they be crowing by now? By the way it is freezing here and I got my first egg yesterday and another one today! I am not sure who is laying but I suspect my white silkie pullet mainly because I am not sure if the showgirl is male or female!

    I don't know silkies, but I do know chickens in general. If you have roos they will crow eventually.

    ...Unless you have the fabulously elusive crow-less rooster. In which case you have a true treasure and I'll take 2, please. [​IMG]

    We have 2 Silkies..my daughter had to have some [​IMG] My little guy is no bigger than a peanut ok he's with other normal sized babies his age and he crows..he's about 10-12 weeks time flies so fast I can't keep up.It's so funny to hear him he's way too tiny to make such a noise.His comb is much more pronounced than the other one.
