    Number 3 is iffy for a rooster, to me. The first two look female and I don't do silkies[​IMG]

    Hmm, I agree. Maybe who knows silkies more than I do can determine the last.

    I think they're all pullets. My RIR hen looked a lot like #3 at that age. She had such thick yellow legs, I thought for sure she'd turn out to be a roo, but she didn't. I think you'd have some wattles by now if it were a boy.

    EE pullet, Buff pullet, probably RIR pullet (watch comb to see if it gets big and red soon, then roo), and I don't do Silkies either.

    Here are a few better pics of the RIR the combs looks red in the previous pics for some reason but really it's more yellow. Let me know what you guys think of my RIR.
