New Silkies - hen or roo?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
im sorry, I know everyone hates this game. I'm not bad at identifying other breeds, but silkies, I'm lost. The lady I got these from said they are from TSC.

The little brown one is a roo, but how about the white and grey one?

Thanks for any help.

Assuming they are all the same age or fully grown, both are hens.

Thank you. They are the same age.

I'm thinking pullets.

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 all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."

They are the same age, you said  but, just what age is that?   I am really lost with hatchery birds, they have such a different appearance from breeder /show stock.

I am hoping to eventually get silkies from a breeder. These are just because my daughter adores them. She bought them as chicks back in April.
