    I am taking guessed but they are total guess. So any help with sex and color would be great. These are my first silikes.

    This one I *think* is a roo. What is up with the white on his neck? This one is about 10/11 weeks old

    Any guess on this one? Is it a smooth coat silkie? Or not a silkie? It was sold to me as a silkie. I think this one is closer to 8 maybe 9 weeks old

    No clue on this one either

    These are my 2 older ones. About a month older. I think one maybe a pullet and one a roo?

    I think the first 3 are sizzles,2 frizzled and one smooth.
    Am completely guessing on sexes, but I think the first is a roo and the others are pullets. The last pic looks like a pullet on the left and a roo on the right. [​IMG]

    # 1 looks like it may be getting streamers, but I am not familiar with sizzles, so just a guess.
    #2 also looks like it is getting streamers, I'm going with roo.
    #3, pullet.
    #4, hen on left, cockerel on right.

    I should have added they are all came from the same person. This is what was said about them.

    May be pure silkie or silkie-sizzle cross. Hens are 100% silkies (white, black, partridge) or "sizzles" (silkie x frizzled cochin- black and grey) bred to buff and partridge silkie roosters.


    Wondering how well they compare to something of quality. I really don't care that much as they are just spoiled pets. But am wanting to learn what quality and non quality look like.
