So one of my Red hens went broody and, unable to break her, I got some fertile eggs from a friend. I didn't know what breed they would be until they hatched (there are five of them). After researching various sources (most from this site X3) I've come to the conclusion that they are Black Silkie x Barred Rock mixes. And based on what I've read, I likely have two males and three females.
However I just thought I’d double check their gender here because:
I don’t know for sure if they’re from a barred hen x siklie rooster or if they’re from silkie hen x barred rooster and whether or not that makes a difference in identifying the sexlink, or if their parents were purebred to begin with;
Neither of the suspected roos really had a spot on their head, just more white around there faces than their sisters; and now at four weeks, only one of them is showing barring and they are all the same size.
Here are some pics of Dino:

And these are their sisters :
I apologize for the bad quality, these pictures where difficult to get.
