    I had 5 white silkies given to me and I don't know anything about them can any one help? There feet have feathers on them super fuzzy! That's all I know. How do I know if I have hens or roosters? I don't know how to add pics but there are some on my profile.

    They are really too young to be certain, especially from photos.

    From the pic it looks like two boys and a girl but I could be wrong but the two have wider combs then the one. :)
