    So what about these?
    And can you tell me why a young pullet will lay her eggs on the ground and try to bury them? This is the second egg I have found like that. She has only been laying about 2 weeks.

    The black one is a silkie
    The white one an the gray one on the right are Cochins.

    Thanks so much. Is the gray one on the right a rooster?

    He looks like he could be but cant really tell on that picture. I would wait till you can see pointy feathers on his back at the base of the tail before I would call him a roo.
