    Now on to the chicks I am unsure about....

    Chick #3 dark brahma bantam, I think a hen because of the color.

    Chick #4 white Cochin I am thinking a hen but a few weeks ago I was positive it was a roo, because she had a comb and red waddles but they seem to have gone away LOL

    Chick #5 Silkie- I know they are extremely hard to guess until much older but If someone wants to guess so we can give it a name LOL

    If it crows its a rooster, lays a egg its a hen.

    Thanks, that is what I figured I guess I just needed someone else to say for sure LOL I am so happy the Cochin is a hen, I was really bummed a few weeks ago when she looked to be growing a large comb and waddles.. I would love to hatch some eggs from her and the frizzle.

    Agree with you on the cockerels. I think you will need a unisex name for the silkie, it will be some time before a positive verdict is given.
