    Silkies are one of the hardest breeds to sex. From what I can see, the top white one is the only one looking suspicious. The others appear to be pullets as of now.

    That is what I've heard the guy I bought them from said I may have to wait until they Crowe or lay eggs. Lol. Here is a side view of the one you think could be a roo... Still he is very sweet and let's me hold and pet him...

    I'm still not 100% sure on that one. (Nor on any of the other ones for that matter.[​IMG]) Post again in a couple weeks.

    Really need head shots showing the comb - could someone help you and hold crest back so we can see combs clearly, or use a rubber band to make a temporary pony tail.

    How old are they?
