    I swear, just when I decide one of these guys is a gal, I decide it's a guy... or vice versa! Hopefully some of you byc'ers can help me out! [​IMG]

    The white silkies and the cochin are the youngest... (born Last week in June) The buff silkie and the two sizzles are about six weeks older. [​IMG]

    This guy has no comb to speak of, but man does he glare!! (doesn't that automatically make him a roo?) [​IMG]

    sweet chickens, I love the sizzles! but I'm no good at sexing them. I had a silkie and couldn't decide if it was a hen or a roo until he started crowing. I have another silkie that looks exactly like him, but she lays eggs. Good luck.

    The first two silkies buff and white look like roos, white silkie number two looks like a hen as does the smooth sizzle, the sizzle I have no idea!? [​IMG] the cochin is a hen and I'm 100% sure on that one! [​IMG]

    Thanks for the replies! That buff has been driving me crazy! I'm pretty sure he's a roo... He used to make this really weird noise all the time when I had my polishx roo who crowed ALL THE TIME! When I rehomed the roo the sound stopped so I guess my buff (princess, renamed prince) [​IMG] decided there was no competition so he didn't need to be obnoxious anymore. I didn't have a clue about the cochin, never had one before so thank you [​IMG] for helping out with her. I am so happy to have at least one girl!!
