    Well crap. I Already have 2 Cockerels and 1 pullet. Lost the others to neighbours dog.

    Now, I went out to purchase 3 chicks. Seller said the mother was a brown shaver, but they didn't know what breed the father was. I'm sure it's a silkie, One of the chicks has 5 toes, Not sure if they all come from the same family.

    Possible Ages: 5-8 Weeks, They've been living outside for the past 2-3 weeks or so.

    The one that's mostly white is definitely male. The one with a big single comb and yellow legs might be male, needs a few more weeks to be sure. The red with a slight crest might also be male, with that lanky build and patchy coloring.

    I agree to that - you could post new pictures in a couple of weeks - if their comb changes.

    For **** sakes.

    Just went outside a couple of minutes ago after my 3 month old cockerel started to get startled in the middle of the night.

    A cat just killed my three chicks, Not happy.
