Is this a Silkie cock?
« on: January 27, 2011, 19:05 »
Got 2 silkies a couple of months ago and thet were too young to sex. Have never had silkies before. One of them is very different now so is there any doubt its a cock?

S/he is a lovely bird :)

Has s/he crowed ? 

I can't see his/her legs but a cock bird will have heavier legs than a laydeee :)

The comb looks a bit large - is the other one the same?
Staffies are softer than you think.

will check out the legs tomorrow to see if there's a difference. The other one is very different. Not sure if they came from teh same parents but no eggs and no crowing yet from either of them

i would say a cockrel by the looks but its dam hard to tell from the picture. best way is to see if it has larger tail feathers. as cockrels will have . hope this helps /

Shame my 2 white girls already have a mate!  Wouldn't they have made a handsome trio?
