    LOL [​IMG] I was afraid of that, but I was just hoping...I was thinking of getting a rooster to go with my grown Silkie hen, but didn't want to if I already have one!

    On another line of thought...what color do you think they'll be?

    Blue and Partridge Pullets, to the best of my experience anyway-you won't know for sure untill the wattels and combs show color, or they go through there first molt.
