    I do not have too much experience with silkies, but my guesses are:

    Blue: hen
    Pink: hen
    Purple: hen
    White: unsure, but the comb is pretty big, roo, maybe
    Green: roo
    Rainbow: definitely a roo since he crows.
    Orange: roo

    Thank you for your input. I will watch this thread and post updates. Maybe it will be helpful for others too. Silly Silkies. Since these guys were straight run I was sure I would get mostly roosters...lol. I think we may keep one rooster but will need to find homes for the others. Anyone interested? We are in central NC.

    I'm in NC, I just got a 2.3 of silkies 2 roos and 3 hens...was told I was picking up 1 roo and 4 hens but I'm pretty dag on sure the black chicken is a roo and a mix at that, his ears are white and his comb starts off like the typical wart then turns singular and pretty tall for any silkie i've seen. X_x but he has pretty feathered legs and good foot structure. so no can't be interested in any roo's. lol i still have to see what my 3 babies are going to me, they are all blues [​IMG]
