10 week old Silkie Mix

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So I have 5 white silkie mixes
2 BR roo/white silkie hen
3 Buff/white silkie possible

The BR chicks seem obvious. 1 pullet 1 roo. Due to size and comb

The other 3 smaller more chestnut chicks are harder


Here is 4 of the 5. What do you think about the 2 brown chicks? Both are roughly the same size.

One I'm convinced is a pullet is Audrey. Am I right?



And here is the 5th that I think is a Roo and his name is Rusty

In this firs pic, I think the blackest bird in the back is a pullet, the rest are cockerels.

I think this is a cockerel.

Thank you for looking. I will be happy with just 2 pullets. I hope #5 Rusty is a pullet. He is by far the prettiest but his comb throws me off. Let me find a picture.

The color on Rusty is a very pullet coloring. I do see some comb, but not that much.....how old is the bird?

 

edited     sorry, age is in the title....duh. I'm thinking pullet on Rusty.

I agree with donrae's guesses.

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!
