    I have these two 4 month old silkies who were *supposed* to be pullets, but I'm not so sure.
    I hope they aren't cocks, because then I'll have to sell them. [​IMG]

    Not that great of pics of Silkie 2, so I'll probably update that later.

    Any ideas?

    The white one looks like a pullet to me, and the black one I'm not sure from the picture

    The white one looks like a pullet...I'm not sure on the second one. Possibly a cockerel (sorry).

    Thanks, this helps a lot, maybe I won't have to sell them after all!

    Unless you're right FluffyChick77, about the black one being a possible cock.
    I hope not! [​IMG]
