    Good morning!
    So I think Fuzzy may be old enough to determine if she/he is a pullet/roo? Also, if anyone has an idea on coloring? My DH was going for a "blue" silkie, but she/he looks more "black" to me, but then...what do I know? Fuzz is 14 weeks.

    thanks!!

    p.s. please tell me the white silkie is a pullet!!!!

    Hard to tell... but the white does look like a pullet. I think that the blue silkie is cockerel. [​IMG]

    Its difficult to tell with silkies but some male traits are long legs, carriage of the wings and tail, long neck, and some pointy feathers in the crest. Until it lays or crows its tough to tell.
    Good Luck! [​IMG]

    Ok thanks! I have prepared myself in case the blue silkie is indeed a roo....guess we will just wait for the egg laying/crowing to start! I would agree that the white is a pullet, there are 3 whites and they all look and act the same (so that is a relief), it is just the blue that confuses me. One day I say pullet and the next...roo! She/he is still getting in head feathers too, so....waiting game.....

    thanks all!! [​IMG]
