    We were told they were 5 months but some others didn't agree with that. (They were also said to be Silkies and defiently are not!) I also think the white is a too bit I'm new to this so I'm not for sure! They are in their own coop and tend to stay inside still. I feel they should be in the run more?[​IMG] [​IMG]

    I think the white one is definitely a Cochin, probably a pullet!

    all in the pictures are cochin bantams from what I can tell (I own a few [​IMG]) all appear to be pullets in the pictures although I'd like a picture of the white cochin standing. whoever sold you those as silkies needs to be informed that they are scam artists as silkies of course have black beaks feet and skin... I love cochins though and wouldn't trade mine for the world..

    Not that I've heard and I spend a lot of time outside near them.

    Oh it didn't take me long to figure it out I knew as soon as I saw them they weren't Silkies hubby on the other hand didn't care lol what bout them spending time in the run?
    Is it necessary at this point? I can put them down there and they fly right back in the coop. [​IMG]
