I have 4 silkies that I got at the same time I assume from the same hatch. One started crowing 2-3weeks ago. The others have not yet. One of them has a scissor beak. I wonder if he is a roo, but slower to develop. The other two chicks, I have no idea. Help me out. Do I have any pullets?

Maverick definitely a roo. IMG_20181124_172908738.jpg

This is Goose.

The second and 4th look a lot alike, but the 2nd has a longer neck.

Thanks for any guesses.

Looks like you got lucky and have 3 pullets :celebrate no guarantees, but I would say pullets. Beautiful birds. I have 5 bearded silkies.
