I Have been waiting for some of my silkies to start crowing but they all seem to be egg laying hens! 6 out of six from my broody.
....And I incubated 3 eggs of different breed at the same time and they also were all hens.
I even gave them bit names as I was sure that they were roos! Very strange.

Next batch I guess will all be roos. Pride before a fall and all that! Doh!

Here is one I called Dave. Looking a bit soggy after havering a mud bath in the rain.

That sure looks roo-ish to me, but then again, I'm not a silkie expert. I prefer my birds a bit bigger - as in brahma sized and less broody. ;)
