    Hi! This is my first year with Silkies--they are such little sweethearts! Very quiet and docile. So quiet that I have not heard any crowing, so I'm not sure of the gender...any guesses? They are approximately 16-19 weeks old. I hatched them myself from some shipped eggs purchased on ebay.

    I agree. Looks like hens to me.

    1 and 4 look like boys to me, not sure on the other two.

    Quote:That's what I thought, too. It's ok if any of them are Roos--I have enough room for them all--in fact, it would be nice to get a few baby silkies next spring from my own birds...[​IMG]
