    Sorry for all the questions, but I really appreicate everyones input. This is the first time I've had chickens. What do you all think about the age and sex of these chicks? The bigger ones were from a pullet run the others straight run.

    LOL. I put up a picture of my blue silkie ..first pic. And the second pic still labelled chik 1a is actually a blue frizzle. And they are looking more and more like roos. But I'm so new at this I have no idea. I've had them for 5 weeks but I've also had the paint silkie for five weeks and that one is only 5 oz compared to the blues that are 1 pound.

    The cuckoo silkie, Red, the white one, and a couple of the EEs are roosters.

    The only obvious cockerel so far looks like the barred silkie (first picture).
