    I just received 3 silkies. Mama hen and her 2 babies. They said they were about 4 month old and females. I just want to make sure.[​IMG]

    Not a Silkie expert, but to me they look like hens.

    They look like hens to me, but Silkies are notoriously difficult to sex.

    I think they are hens. The one on the left is looking kind of suspicious though
