I think the partridge one is a hen and the one on the far right in the first pic is a roo. The other one doesn't look like a full silkie. Its feathers aren't fluffed and are tight to the body. I think it may be a mix. I have never seen them that smooth. But judging from its big waddles I say roo on that one too.
So 2 roos and 1 hen, imo.
that is the strangest thing...when my friend that done the cork thing corked them she said the same thing.....uh oh maybe I am a believer now
I agree...partridge hen and 2 roos.

EDIT: I can't find it, but I know its out there.
The Partridge and Bearded Gray are hens. The non-bearded Gray looks more like a rooster.
Head-on pictures of their combs would help...
Quote:I'd pay close attention to what kentuckysilkies says for sure. I'm going by what they say with all my little ones too.
The bearded grey looks like its getting streamers. I'm not trying to argue, but I think its a roo. Everyone is right, comb pics would help settle it. Pics of them standing up would help to so we can clearly see saddle and tail feathers.
Either way, we are all in agreement on the partridge hen and nonbearded roo.
My guess is one partridge hen and 2 roos.
