    Ok, I am guessing here but I think the BO in the pic is a roo. The speckled sussex X BO in the foreground is a roo, same hatch and same daddy. The two crosses are crowing for a couple of weeks now but not a peep from the two BO. OUt of 6 eggs it is looking to me that I have at least 5 roos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What do you think? [​IMG]

    Thanks guys, I was pretty sure that was what I had! Sigh! Now I need to get some more pics of our two silkies of the same age and see if you can give me some ideas there. I suspect that I have a roo and a hen. Of course there is no way to know for sure yet but would really like some ideas from you all.

    Silkies?? I'm out! No way can I sex those feather dusters, LOL. Not unless there's a great big purple comb glaring at me!

    A few months ago I sold a 3 month old silkie as a boy. I would have bet everything it was a boy.

    The man that bought it called me a week ago. The cockerel just laid his first EGG!!!

    Proves I can't sex silkies.
