    If these are too big, let me know

    The Polish are 7 weeks old. The one in the first pic is on the left in the 2nd pic.

    Did the Polish crow or this handsome silkie below?

    I think it is the polish. The buff silkie at the bottom looks like a girl??? My silkies that are about 10 weeks have streamers coming out the back of the head. Just my opinion [​IMG]

    Beautiful birds!!!!

    Hmm, the polish both look like girls to me, where as silkies are much harder to sex.

    The polish on top is a male because of the bright red waddles. The ones on bottom look like a male in the front and a female behind him. Silkies look like pullets, but I can't really see directly in front of them to see comb size.

    Hi, someone has been eeking a little crow now and then, well I caught him today. It's the White crested Polish in the first pic. Saw him myself. I have to laugh at the little guy.

    It is so cute when they first start to crow.

    I just bought a bantam pair of wc/black and his crow is the smallest little crow compared to my large fowl.

    Did you find out what your buff silkie is???

    My buff (partridge) silkie, well, they are 12 weeks old, "he" is the only one with a red or berry colored comb. He still acts rooish. Then I have a splash, and hoping she stays a she. She has a small black comb. And I have a little gray one, no comb at all, nothing. Your guess is as good as mine, LOL

    Both my partridge silkies have no comb. The only way I can tell what they are is the streamers that are coming out the back of the boys head.

    I will take a picture of Henny Penny and post it. See my avatar, it is her mom and dad.
