    Here are my 12 - 14 week old EEs and Silkie. There are 2 EEs and 1 Silkie and I am trying to determine their genders as I am getting too many Roos and need to give some away.
    If anyone could help I would greatly appreciate it.

    EEs are definitely cockerels. I do not know anything about Silkies though.

    The EEs look like roosters, but your silkie looks like a girl. [​IMG]

    Check your silkies comb, a hen hasa nearly flat profiler over the beak at that age, while a rooster has a raised comb that looks quite rough. The other 2 lookn like roos to me

    Is there any way you can post a picture of your silkie's comb. Maybe a couple different angles.
