Three Silkie Roosters?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Have 3 silkies and they all three scuffle like roosters. I know silkies are hard to sex but figured it was worth a shot to ask here. Want to find some more if they are all three the same sex.

Chick A has always hard prettier rounder feathers than the other two.

I know they're pet quality, but are they silkie mixes?  That first bird (the one you're saying is fluffier/rounder) looks to have "regular" feathers rather than the furry looking silkied feathers.  So I'm wondering if it's a cochin/silkie mix???  If they're mixes, it'll be harder to sex them, as their combs/wattles might be influenced by the other breed characteristics.  How old are these birds???

Caretaker of a lovely mixed flock including: australorp, plymouth rocks, wyandotte, d'uccles, silkies, EEs, andalusian, and a few seramas, plus a golden retriever, great dane, and three cats.  I always swore that I wouldn't succumb to chicken math.  I lied.
