okay, I have 3 little black silkie chicks. Just wanted to ask a few questions to the silkie experts. So, I was looking at them, picking them up and checking for ways to tell the sexes of them and I personally think I have 2 cockerels and 1 pullet. I know you need pics and I will do that tomorrow but from what I can tell 2 have a poof that looks like they almost go back into a triangle or mohawk in the back and 1 has the poof that spreads evenly across from side to side. The 2 that have the mohawk looking looking poof also have the more noticeable turquoise earlobes and combs, the other one I have to separate the feathers to look for a comb and it's just a little bump. The 2 I suspect are boys are also the larger of the 3. Does it sound like I've guessed right? And for tomorrow when I take pics, what should I take? And I don't know how old they are, I'm guessing 8-10 weeks. They are half the size of my 11 week old BO and I know they are a smaller breed.
Thank you guys and gals
