    Looking at those pics, I'd say 1, 3, 4, and 6 are roos, but it is waaaay too early to tell with a Silkie.

    I'm definitely going with 4 (Frankie) and 6 (Uno) being boys, but was REALLY hoping the white one was a girl.
    Ah well, like you said, it's still very early!

    Awwwww... x2??? I'm not liking those odds much. I would probably agree on #1 based on behavior if nothing else, but pleeeeease can't the white one be a girl???

    Brow and Frankie look like little boys, and possibly uno.

    One day my cat jumped up on the table where their brooder cage is, and based on their behavior, I made a guess that those 3 were boys!

    PS- the cat has ZERO interest in the peeps, so don't worry!

    Still too early to tell but if I had to guess I would say all roos.
