    I'm going to apologize ahead of time for so many pics & so many questions, if your confused I'll definately try to clear things up LOL, there's just so many!! Thanks yall....

    BREED QUESTION: Here is my Cross Silkie, her momma was a true silkie, daddy coulda been an OE or Faverolle?...

    [​IMG]#1 :) prettiest I think[​IMG]#4 (oz)
    I"m pretty sure from left to right that #4 (the smallest one is a roo, he's getting lil wattles & his combs pretty big for 4 wks)


    BANTAM SEXING #2: Bantam OE mixes....
    [​IMG]Going from left to right #4 (lil brat),5(angel) were the only gold ones at birth, the right 1's still mostly light gold, I think they're all hens, except maybe #4. #2 is the cross silkie mix, #3 (BB) is totally black except her middle front there & slightly dark dark brown on top, #1 is my fav so decorated looking..
    [​IMG]Here's #1 "Crusty"[​IMG]
    [​IMG]#4 "Lil Brat" (#6 Fudge BR mix also on right)
    [​IMG]#5 angel, #4 Lil brat, #3 BB

    SEXING CROSS BARRED ROCKS (Breeding too if yall think yall know, some are JG, some prod red maybe?):

    [​IMG]From Left to right: #1 (Galaxy) only one with barred markings, short wings prolly a roo.., #4 (Blondie) still almost totally blonde, #5 (Nosy) prolly a roo :( black wing markings coming in fast along w/wattles/comb, & #6 (Fudge) definately has its JG's daddy's feet, some black on top. (more pics below of each)....

    Yea I know there's plenty of cockerals, I'm definately for sure 4 outta the 5 bantams are pullets, Lil Brat might not be, but it has the biggest comb not that that means much yet.
    I know at least 2 of the Lorps are cockerals, & I'm pretty sure at least 3 of the 6 BR mixes are cockerals, the jersey's definatly a hen, so outta 18, I guess I'll have about 6 cockerals on a good day lol and maybe like 8 or 9 on a bad day lol, which techincally is good odds, we usually get more boys
