Nov 19 – Lil’ Red, the silkie, has shown himself to be male.  Most obviously by the big gnarly comb on his face.  Secondly by his chasing down of Oliver in a most unfriendly manner.  He’s a funny little chicken.  Once I realized he was a roo, I picked him up and could see just how drastically different he looked from sweet Avery.  His face is very roosterish and fierce.
