Silkies, silkies, silkies!

Here we go again, more silkie sexing wink.png These photos arent as good as the last batch I had a couple weeks back - they didn't want to cooperate this time!









I know there's two where the birds aren't facing the camera; Maggie was more interested in exploring and Tobi was being camera shy. Tobi (the very first photo) has a very rounded ball of fluff on her (?) head, it looks very feminine from the photos I've seen.

My best guess would be girl, girl, boy (this one tends to watch over the rest, too), no idea, boy, girl. I'm very, very new to chickens so it wouldn't surprise me if I was very wrong.

I think I see at least two cockerels, but will be needing some better pics

When I don’t measure up to much in this life

How old are they?  Hatchery silkies??      I'm not familiar with beardless silkies  - it kinda throws the  look off.

They're roughly seven and a half weeks old - they couldn't have been more than a day or two old when I picked them up. TSC chicks - the local breeder we were suppose to go through didn't have any chicks hatch.

Alright, here's some new (and hopefully better) photos:

Wyatt:





Bayley:





River:





Sidney:



Maggie:



And camera shy little Tobi:


My best guess would be Tobi and maaaaaybe Sidney are hens, the rest little cockerels.
