    So our Silkie was sitting on what we thought were pure Silkies, since we had never seen the Cochin Roo near her. By day three we knew the chicks were mixes, and now I need a little help figuring out gender.
    I think these two are female, their comb is still pretty flat.

    And I have two that look like this one, I think are male...

    Any thoughts?

    How old are they? Agree that last one sure looks like a roo with the pink comb/wattle.

    They're right around three months.

    The last one appears to be a male, judging by the large comb. The others, from the photos, look like pullets.

    Thanks for looking, I'm glad I had some kind of idea what to look for.
    Now I just have to figure out what to do with these little mutts :)
