    The pics of #3 aren't the best but it was like tracking big foot. Thanks

    I want to say pullets but I think they need more time to fill out to really be sure.

    Thanks for your input. I know it's early but these are my first sets of silkies and I wanted to document with guesses so I can become better. I'll post the results when they lay or crow. PLEASE KEEP GUESSING THANKS

    I'm gonna guess all 3 Pullets - but I agree with wanttobefarmer, They need to fill out alittle more first. [​IMG]
    #1 is a pullet for sure! [​IMG]

    I would say all pullets too but yes, more time is needed. I thought my Silkie roo was a pullet up until he crowed at 6 months [​IMG]

    I am going to quess roo on the first one and pullet on the second two. The first one looks like he has a comb coming on.

    well 1 and 2 basically have a flat space where the comb will be (fairly wide) but 3 has a bump, but at 3 months is a bump or even a small comb telling for a pullet or roo? just trying to learn thanks

    I am going to guess that the first two are pullets and the last one is a roo. BUT it is still early to tell. I have some aroudn the same age that I am still trying to figure out.
