    I got 3, one day old, silky/banty chicks. I am pretty sure that Dora (far left) is a roo but he hasnt crowed. they are only a month and a half old so i dont expect him to crow yet. over time i am starting to wonder if Tigi (far right) might be a roo. she/he is the biggest and the most silkyish(?).It also is the easiest to hold but doesnt approach you on its own. what do you think? pullet or roo? left to right.

    I'd say cockerel, pullet, cockerel. They're pretty!

    half silkie half banty [​IMG] I love them but we sadly will have to get rid of the roos [​IMG] we have other hens though, the pullet wont be alone. I got them from my friend straight run so we knew there was a chance

    Hmm I'm not seeing any silkie there, and silkies are bantys. Banty=bantam which is just the miniature size chicken [​IMG]. They look like d'uccles to me and I agree on the sexing guesses.
