lmao my Silkie roo crows all day and has a nice loud crow. He starts at about 4am and doesn't stop till around dark. He also chases the kids (which is funny as heck lol, he doesn't hurt them though he is missing most of his nails from frost bite ) and he is dominant over our Cochin Roo.

Here's a pic of Prince Charming , he's not your typical silkie. He came from ideal hatchery.

He looks like my silkie roo except mine has black feathers in the wings and tail snd gray speckles on his back. Very similar shape though

Well then maybe he's not so weird. I thought he was suppose to be smaller like the hens and fluffy. lol He's almost as big as my standard size hens and has the silkie feathers but not that fluffy, and his comb is funky. lol But DH likes him so he stays.

I think the person you got him from might of confused him. He looks nothing like a Silkie. Does he have 5 toes? Usually they have feathered feet too. Handsome though!
