    Both Barred Rocks are roosters. The Rhode Island Red and Orpington are pullets, and I'm leaning towards pullet on the Silkie.

    That is kinda what I was thinking, but am new to having back yard chickens. Thanks so much for your fast response. If any other opinions on the silkie pipe up please:)

    The two barred rocks faces are to red to be hens so definitely both roo's . orpington and rhode island red are both girls :) the silkie i think is a pullet aswell but the size of the tail throws me to think roo. Hope this helps

    Agreed. I'm going to vote pullet on the Silkie.

    I don't do silkies, but agree the Rocks are males and the others are pullets.
