    I know they're very hard to sex, and that I won't know for sure until I see an egg or hear a crow. But, for fun, anyone have any idea? the one Splash has a huge comb compared to the others... Some have rounder head poof than others, and some it's patchy and more "punk" style.. LOL.

    And just because, my beautiful, sweet roo, Thor. He was a gift from a local breeder and I love him to bits. He is so good with the young'uns, they sleep under him and he keeps watch. I also have a blue who came with him, but I cannot get good pics of the darn boy!

    How old are they? Mine are 11 weeks old and I cant see any comb yet. I really am hoping I have 2 girls.

    Yeah, they are not easy to photograph. Crazy critters won't hold still!

    I was thinking Snowbird would be a girl too... Glad it wasn't in my head. I thought about taking pics of all of them, but I figured it would be overkill to get several pics of all 20 odd Silkies, LOL. I'm hoping I get 5-10 hens, but I'm realistic, so I won't be too depressed! These guys are not quality birds, but they're just pets so it' ok! The big roo is much better quality. All I care about is poof, poof, and snuggly poof. I am in love with this breed!
