    So far you seem to be right about which are boys. They have the pointed feathers, A couple of the pics were a little fuzzy so hard to tell. The pullets will have a rounded feathers and the roos have pointed feathers. If you look at chick #3 and chick #4 you can see what I'm talking about. Good Luck

    So Looking at feathers Im thinking

    4,5,6,10,and 13 are Roos

    2,3,and 7 are hens

    And I still have no idea about 1,8,11,12 and 14.

    Does this seem right to everyone?

    4, 5, 6, 10, and 13 a cockerels.

    the rest seem to be pullets, but with silkies you usually have to wait til later on.

    #12 looks like my Phoenix/Silkie X "Hiro" when he was that age. Hiro's a cockerel. I'd say #12 is a Silkie X with something in a Silver duck wing pattern....maybe OEGB??

    #8 I'm going with pullet SilkieX.

    #13 pullet OEGB
    Middle one in the first pic and #7, #10, #6, #5 #4 (again another SilkieX) look like a roos
    #20 the only thing I can tell you is it's a SilkieX
    Everyone I didn't list I would say are young ladies.

    So far this has been alot of help. Everyone seems to agree on some of them but there are a few that are still confusing me

    Petey #13

    and Spot #2 ( I put 20 but its suppose to be 2)

    Also will a pullet chase the others and put there neck feathers out because it seems like they are all doing that.


    Also #8 has turned a little mean. She keeps pecking at me and the 5 younger chicks. is this normal at this age?
