    Help me find what these guys are! They are 7+ week Cochin x Silkies. The first looks like a frizzle in the making! I also have some barnyard mixed babies with austerlop, leghorn and ameraucana.

    Blue Frizzle Cockerel cochin x silkie?

    Black pullet cochin x silkie?

    I see 2 definate roos in there, along with a possible third. The others look pretty feminine [​IMG]

    The first one is a definite cockerel. I think the in the picture of the bunch of them, the 2 grayish cochinxsilkies are cockerels

    Oh wow what a cool hen! Do you think my red ones will be similar in color or more dull?
