    I mostly have them just as pets. They aren't very old. I'm new to chickens and just for my own curiosity I would love to know what kind they are. I know the difference between hens and roosters. That's about it. And I have 3 baby white silkies I bought but can't tell if they are hens or not. im thinking the orange ones maybe a silkie??

    First one is a buff silkie hen, the rooster, I don't know, could be a mix, the last is a bantam cochin hen.
