Silkies hens or Roos?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I got these silkies about two months ago, the lady said most of them are roosters but some were to young for her to tell, and I'm clueless. Anybody have any idea?

I'd guess they're both cockerels, but...
Silkies are really hard to sex and yours appear to be non bearded, so even your girls will have good sized combs and wattles.

Not much help, huh?
They're cute!

My silkies were the hardest to tell. I had one that I was convinced was a roo, Then she started laying an egg almost everyday. They do look more like roosters to me though.

They are looking pretty rough  looking t o    me  -  do they have mites/lice?  I'd want to give them a good bath and dry job and better photos.   Does the seller just have hatchery stock?
