    Quote:lol thanks! i named them because of the following:
    Dragon is the coolest lookin one who is the least shyest
    Snake has a long skinny neck with almost no beard
    and CN was the smallest and still is so far [​IMG]

    I'm not sure quite yet. Silkies are tough to sex. I was guessing on mine for the longest time. I had a rooster that did not start crowing until he was about 6 months old. I also have a couple hens that I woried about until they started laying at 9 months old!

    I'm thinking Dragon and chicken little are girls, cannt tell on #2 would need to look at the face.

    Roosters (most times, but not always) will have a larger fatter comb. Dont get your hopes up just on my word, you wont know 100% for sure unless you actually see an egg pop out.
