Almost 4 months, and one Silkie finally let me in on the secret of it’s gender. Actually, it wasn’t a big surprise when I heard my white Silkie attempt to crow this morning. His name is now officially Jo, not Jojo.
Silkies are nearly impossible to sex until they’re mature enough to either crow or lay an egg. If you watch them often enough, their behavior sometimes offers a clue, but even still, nothing is ever for sure until that moment of truth.
I suspected all along Jo was going to be my big chance to give the No Crow rooster collar a whirl.
The ordered was placed this morning for the collar at My Pet Chicken. I’m pretty excited to see if the collar will keep Jo’s crowing to just a minimal annoyance.
Well that’s one mystery solved… now I wonder if Patricia is actually a Patrick! Waiting to see.
