    Now that my Chicks are now almost 4 months old, Can anyone tell me if any of them are roo's? I suspect 2 of them are.

    I don't see any red combs, so I would suspect hens. I really don't know anything about silkies, though.

    What pretty chicks you have. The reds look like pullets. Not sure about the silkies.

    I have a black silkie who looks like yours. I was wondering if she is actually a roo. Mine is younger than yours so I still have awhile, really hoping she is a hen!!!

    Your chickens are very pretty!

    How old are they? I'd say the reds are pullets, there is no red combs on them and the tail would be a lot longer and really pretty green feathers on the end, the black is normal for a hen.[​IMG]

    Your RIR look just like mine at 19 weeks..pullets

    the silkie, (I have one also, but black) looks like mine too...no idea on the sex on my silkie,
    although someone told me with the feathering coming off the back of the head, and sort of sticking out, it is a roo.
