    So I have 5 white silkie mixes
    2 BR roo/white silkie hen
    3 Buff/white silkie possible

    The BR chicks seem obvious. 1 pullet 1 roo. Due to size and comb

    The other 3 smaller more chestnut chicks are harder

    Here is 4 of the 5. What do you think about the 2 brown chicks? Both are roughly the same size.

    One I'm convinced is a pullet is Audrey. Am I right?

    And here is the 5th that I think is a Roo and his name is Rusty

    In this firs pic, I think the blackest bird in the back is a pullet, the rest are cockerels.

    Thank you for looking. I will be happy with just 2 pullets. I hope #5 Rusty is a pullet. He is by far the prettiest but his comb throws me off. Let me find a picture.

    The color on Rusty is a very pullet coloring. I do see some comb, but not that much.....how old is the bird?

    edited sorry, age is in the title....duh. I'm thinking pullet on Rusty.
