    Hello all! Thought i'd post some pics of my almost one-month-old babies. I have three standards and seven banties. The standards are of course supposed to be ladies and the banties are who knows. If you see any obvious roos, please let me know. I don't have pics of all my banties because some are still a little skittish...

    My sweet little runt, a black silkie named Sofia

    They are a little to young to tell yet. Here is a couple of pictures of some of my 6 week old chicks.

    I think that the little white silkie may be a little roo. Its kinda hard to tell....

    The others are almost %98.9 girls!! Maybe someone else will chime in.... [​IMG]

    Quote:I was kinda thinking that too but then I saw another thread on this forum with a pic of a three week old sussex and she looked just like mine. Fingers crossed!!

    Cmom, your chicks are lovely! Yeah, I know it's early especially for Bantams.. I was just hoping maybe some more experienced eyes could chime in...

    Scarlett 456, I hope you are right! Although I really love that little white silkie. [​IMG]

    Another thing to check is leg thickness, compare chicks legs, the thicker legs are normally cockerals, although you can't really tell until they are pretty much fully feathered. [​IMG]

    Stormylady, their combs are still really yellow/pale. Haven't seen any redness.
