    Here are my guesses:
    1-Roo
    2-Roo
    3-Roo
    4-Hard to tell, perhaps a pullet
    5-again, hard to tell, but guessing a pullet
    6-Roo
    7-Pullet

    They look old enough that someone should be crowing by now.

    I think they are all roos except the 4th one and the last one.

    Thanks everyone so far! I have a feeling we have more roos, are the roo silkies normally much bigger? We have a few that a much smaller with less "stuff" on their face...lI was thinking they are the hens. But, I have never had chickens before so I don't know a thing....but we sure love them!!
    Last one had just eaten watermelon!! They LOVE it! That is what is all over her face [​IMG]

    From my experience, in general, the roos will be bigger than the pullets. It's especially noticeable in the feet - big feet.

    Did you say they were 12 weeks? You haven't heard anyone crowing yet?
