He’s gorgeous and easy to handle. He looks like an 80s hair band lead singer yet sadly the black silkie has began crowing in the morning leading me to believe he’s a rooster. While I really like him, the silkies were for laying so I think he must go. My neighbor knows a gal with a small farm that could want him so I’ll follow up on that. I don’t want to separate them until I have a pair for the (hopefully she’s a hen!) white silkie. I should make reference that after reading around on some silkie breeder forums, hens have been known to crow and this is one of the most challenging breeds to sex the pullets from the cockrels. I’m bummed cause I really like him and not having ever been a fan of birds I will be sad to see him leave.
