    One red, one black, one white. At least one is attempting to crow, I don't know which. Help please! [​IMG]

    The red one and the white one are both hens, the 2nd one for sure is a boy, I have 8 silkies 4 months old and by now you can really tell apart the boys from the girls, all boys have big wattles and big comb, plus the stance of the females in less straight than boys.

    I'm not here to help...just to compliment! They're so cute -- hope I can get at least a couple someday. Cool to have different colors in your flock.
    My mother used to have only whites when I was a child.

    They do all look like roosters, but its so hard to tell!
