    These two are about 5 months old. They are skittish little things and it's hard to get pics. One has a slight bit of pink on his/her face, but I'm not seeing anything that screams roo. However, they are silkie mixes. Mom was a black silkie, dad was a light brahma. They have a sister who is a couple weeks older, Zoe, and I included a pic of her for comparison. I have no idea if any of the 3 are laying yet. I have 7 who are at POL and a few have started laying, but I've only been able to identify 3 for sure.

    These pics were the best I could do. They run in terror when they see me coming, even whilst holding a bowl of shredded cheese! Silly chickens.

    Here is Lucy

    And Ethel

    And here is their older sister Zoe, who I am pretty sure is a pullet, hiding under the deck.
