    It would be extremly helpful to know age? And silkies are really hard to sex, I am not evengoing to venture to guess even after knowing age

    Your frizzle Silver Laced Cochin is a rooster he has a really red comb and has a large development in his comb and wattles. I'm not so sure about the silkie they are hard to sex at such a young age, I would suggest posting him/her again in a few more week. [​IMG]

    Your Cochin is a rooster for sure. The comb is way too large and red for a pullet. As for the Silkie, they are very difficult to sex. However, I'd make a tentative guess of male.

    Frizzle is a rooster.

    I don't do silkies, so no guesses there.
