No idea about the last 4.  Guessing that 1,2,3,4, possible 5 are pullets.  #6, I think is a boy!  

Jesus Christ is my pilot.

My husband of 41 years is my best friend and co-pilot.

Enjoying my gardens.  My flock are my garden helpers.

Breeding a winter hearty flock with small combs and colored eggs.

Favorite breeds:  Dominique and EE.  Hatching addict.

5 is male. 

 

6 may be male, hard to tell from the pic.

 

I think 7 is male, that's a lot of comb. 

 

No one else is screaming cockerel right now. But silkies are hard to sex until they're older, so maybe post again around 3 months.
