    Hi everyone!

    Long time lurker here, but thought I'd come out of hiding to show you guys some pictures:


    [​IMG]
    This is Earl my white silkie and Foxy my black polish. Earl is definitely a roo since he's been crowing for a while now.


    [​IMG]
    This is California. My husband swears Cal is a roo, but I'm determined that Cal is a pullet. Any idea who is right?


    [​IMG]
    Not a very good full body pic, but Cal will NOT stay in one place.


    [​IMG]
    And finally this is Sass. Sass I'm pretty sure is the only female silkie I have. Right?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Chaz

    I knew I was in denial about Cal. Hubs is ALWAYS right and he's been saying "Cal is crowing, you're just in denial babe and you refuse to hear it."

    The black - Sass is the one that's confusing to me too. She's a LOT smaller than Earl or Cal, runs away, and doesn't make a sound unless there are meal worms involved. The head versus body is what is confusing to me too. I'm thinking Roo too though.

    Right now they all get along just fine but I'm wondering if that will continue in the long run, especially with only 4 gals in the mix. Thoughts?

    What's the smiley for stomping my foot and saying "DANG IT"?

    Oh well. Hopefully they will all keep getting along.

    Just for future, girl silkies have almost no comb at all visible. Their whole head looks like a poof ball and their wattles are almost non existent too.
