    these silkies are roughly 6-7 months old. i think they are boys but i'm not sure. no crowing and they are extremely docile. also, what color are they? i thought they were suppose to be blue splashes but they have some reddish/buff color in them. any ideas?

    The pics are a bit small, but I'd say you do have two cockerels. As for the color, it looks like a mixed color.

    I just upload them to the largest size, when they're posted, they may look like the are too big and you may only see a portion of the pic, just refresh the page and you will see the whole pic.

    Seriously, the pics are a little too small to accuratly guess. The one on the left resembles a Cockeral, but there really isn't any telling for certain without bigger pics.

    Oh and the colors are DEFINITELY mixed. No pure colors there. If I had to guess I'd say a white and a blue or black was crossed...

    No i did not and i don't need your rude comments either.

    I can see the pictures clearly yes they are small and wish they was a bit bigger but from what My 6 month old pullets look like they look the same.

    You can keep your rude comments to yourself. Thank you!

    They are both roosters and I would love to have one of them. I prefer mixed colors. I think the breeder was going fro Splash, but one of the parent birds was carrying a gene for red or buff.
