    The silkies below were hatched on the same day. Their birth day was 15-18 weeks ago . I need to know what each ones gender is, i live in a suberban town amd cant have any roo's!

    Update:
    'bambam' silkie #2 based on my observations & the opinions of fellow BYC members is most likely a roo. I will sell 'bambam' at the local agway's "chicken seminar" on the 21st. If any one would like 'bambam' and lives in the vicinity of Trumbull, CT PM me before the 21st
