    I bought these at an auction last night, I am not sure what breed. They kinda look like silkies to me, but I thought silkies had dark beeks and feet. Any idea of what brees these are? Also, any clue on whether they are roo's or pullets?

    Well I was sure they werent purebreeds, but I just seen them and thought they look very interesting, and pretty. Any ideas on wether they are roos or hens? One of them has longer tail feathers than the other 2.
