    Im really confused about the Easter Eggers because one has the tufts and one dosent! Does that mean I have one girl and one boy! Im hoping all are girls but I think the tuft easter egger and the black silkie are roosters!

    The only one I am suspicious about is the black silkie [​IMG]

    Tufts are the fur that grows out of the head! No, easter eggers are a mixed breed between who knows what! But when i went to the store to buy them they said they were Aracuanas and aracaunas have tufts! But easter eggers dont!

    Muffs and beards aren't gender indicators. The EE's in the pics look girly to me. (Of course, I've been wrong once or twice. [​IMG] )

    Can't help you with the silkies, but everyone else look like pullets.

    The ee's look like girls. THe black silkie has a mohawk looking 'do, and I've been told that means boy. I have a white silkie that looks exactly like yours, so I'm really hoping it's a girl! LOL

    All the EE/ameracaunas look like pullets. Not sure about the polish or silkie... sorry.
