    Silkies are hard to sex.. I would think by 5 months (if roos) they would be crowing by now.. Mine are just a little over four months and are (been) crowing....

    I have one that looks like #1 and she is a hen,
    They kinda all look like hens. They are gorgeous.

    I have silkies and it looks like you got lucky, I'm pretty sure they're all hens.

    Thanks everyone.
    I'm guessing and hopeing all hens.
    I was thinking the same thing. Could I be that lucky and end up with all three of them being hens.

    Sorry, but you do not have all hens. #2 is a Blue Roo. I would need to see more pictures from different angles to give a better guess on the other two.

    Hmm.....well maybe I was just feeling too lucky. Can I ask how you can tell that the blue is a roo? At what age do they usually start to crow?
    I will take more pics and post soon.
