    I'll post here if I get an egg or a crow out of any of these just as an update.

    Almost 9 weeks old, but I know with silkies that's really early! Anyone want to take a wild guess? I plan on keeping at least one of the roos if I can get away with it, although I'll keep as many as I can get away with since they're so adorable. [​IMG] If they are ALL boys I guess I'll be hatching more eggs next year!

    5. Splash? Silkie - this one is the biggest and most agressive, so I am thinking roo here.

    I have to agree, all roo's except the white one.
    The naked neck is just toooo cute [​IMG], I laughed out loud when I saw that one, you can send him to me if you dont want him! [​IMG]

    Hahahahahha ! Well it's ok, we shall see in a month or two.. or threee. [​IMG] If they are all roos, I'll keep the showgirl and rehome the rest! [​IMG] I have a ton of other roos to rehome from my non silkie hatch too, but waiting until they are six weeks to post those for your guesses. Some are so obvious I won't bother (the ones with huge red combs at three weeks.. doh!).

    I sold half this hatch because I had too many - just my luck I kept all the roos! [​IMG] And yes, the showgirl has a single comb. Not sure how that happened, but I wasn't even expecting to get a showgirl so it's all a surprise to me!

    Actually, I missed one. not sure why, but I have one more grey colored silkie that I didn't get a shot of - poor thing, forgotten. LOL Based on your comments, that one may be female as s/he has the rounder head poof like the white one and no comb to speak of. So I may have five males and two females. We'll see in a few more months, I guess! [​IMG]
