    both are 12 weeks old and very very docile. #1 has a small, smooth mulberry comb. #2 has a huge red lumpy bumpy comb. Neither one has started to crow. Any guesses???

    Both look like roos to me.

    I'm guessing a boy and a girl.

    I say lumpy bump - definately a boy
    smoothy - looks female to me

    ok so we are still at a split decision on #1. That's the one that is a big question mark for me too. Looks like we all agree that #2 is a boy. That's funny because he was the smallest one in the hatch. I'm going to keep him as long as I can.

    I think they're booth cockerels. I wasn't too sure until the last photo of number 1. Looks a lot like a rooster in that photo. But silkies are weird. I've had silkies that looked like roos, called girls over... I even had one particularly strange one that tried to mate. But it turned out to be a gender-confused hen. [​IMG]
