Howdy chicksmama6 and Welcome to BYC

 

I confess to not being very good at guessing genders and Silkies are very hard to sex; sometimes it is just a matter of waiting for that first egg or a crow.

 

I just wanted to mention that the images do not appear to be very clear and it would be hard for those who are good at sexing to do so with those images.

 

Are you able to get some clearer pics at all, showing their combs, wattles, stance, profile etc?  Age is also helpful.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And one man in his time plays many parts."

Cockerels, but it's hard to tell by pictures.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

from what i have looked up and observed from their behaviors..

i'm almost 100 percent they are both cockerels....

Now if thats the case......what do i do???

I only HAVE one hen right now and she is a red sex link and two years old, she does not  seem to like either of them. She chases them away if they get to close to her or the food i throw out.  Do i need to be worried???

helppp
