    All of my chicks are ~6 weeks old, they were around 5 days when I got them so there is a little +/-.

    I sure hope they are all girls (think silkie #1 is a roo though), they )Brahmas) were supposed to be bantams but they are just a little smaller than my BO.

    brahmas are sooo hard to sex cause they are very masculine even the hens...the light ones are pullets , the dark are cockerels...and the buff...i belive are also cockerels... honestly brahmas from my experience are the worst of chickens...especially the males.. on the other hand your silkie is gorgeous but silkies are imposible to sex...

    Anyone else have any guesses? The brahmas act about the same, with the buff being more docile. The silkies are completly docile and take handling well, but one has the crazy comb size I just hope shes a she. Thanks for the replys also.
