    ... and three of my favorite "pullets" are the suspects [​IMG]. All three of them run out from under the plant the crow was coming from a minute earlier and up until yesterday I was sure these three were pullets.


    No. 1 - EE

    No.3 - Silkie, which I think may be a cock-a-doodle'er - it has a little bigger comb then the other Silkie I have, and the crow was so "tiny".

    My other silkie looks like this:

    No. 4

    which also could be a boy, for what I know.

    I also need help figuring out this EE. I thought it was a boy, being very slow in development. I think it was about a month behind everyone else. But now I think it looks quite girly....

    No 5.

    Not sure about the silkies, but I vote, 6, 7 and 8 all possible roos. Just by comb color and size, and possible saddle feathers.

    #5 looks girly to me also and the rest pullets.

    I don't know anything about silkies, but the EE's in question look like girls to me. [​IMG]

    Thanks guys! These are great answers, just about what I was thinking. [​IMG]

    Hope my other silkie won't start crowing.

    I'm voting for 6, 7 or 8 as the "crow-er". Pretty birds!
