    We have 6 frizzle bantams born May 2014. How can you tell who's a rooster and who's a hen? No one is crowing yet, and they all seem to look the same!

    I would think it's a good sign if they aren't crowing yet...but yours dont look as roostery as mine does. We got our silkie bantam in May too...he turned out to be a rooster and started crowing last week. His waddles & comb are more pronounced than the ones in your picture.

    Do you mean the black frizzels or the white silkies? As for the silkies, looks like a trio... the one frizzle looks like a hen, but I cant see enough.
