    On Sept. 18th we bought some chicks at an Atwoods near where we live. We were told they came from Ideal from the employees there. We bought 3 straight run bantams ( 2 Silkies and one Cochin ). Then we bought 6 banded pullets. We were told 2 EE's , 1 BO, 1 BR and a white and dark Cornish. However, both of the cornish turned out to be more EE's. Both of have slate/green legs and muff/beard appearance. Now We're almost 100% sure that one of those banded pullets is really a roo. A pretty roo though. We believe the splash silkie is a roon and the black on is female. The splash one has a huge comb, not sure if it really shows up in the pic and the black has no comb whatsoever. The cochin is a Red Cochin we believe and think it's a pullet. Any help or reassurance would be greatly appreciated. We will keep all of the roo's just want to make sure that is what we have.

    Here is the EE now known as Cleopatra and I'm sure to be renamed:

    Cleopatra is a Cleopatrick, LOL (100% Easter Egger boy)

    Silkies are really hard, and I've had no experience with them, but I'm guessing black-girl, splash-boy (but DON'T take my word for it, I could be completely wrong [​IMG]).

    #4 is a Red Cochin (assuming it has feathered legs) pullet.

    #5 is a white Easter Egger pullet

    Pretty chickens you got there! [​IMG]

    Yes sorry should have mentioned the cochin does have feathered feet. The pic of the splash silkie doesn't show it's comb very well but it has a huge walnut sized comb on it and the black silkie has nothing at all. Which makes us believe it is a roo.

    How ironic. The first Easter Egger we ever got was also mistakenly named Cleopatra. But, that's a boy.

    The Cochin is a girl, the white EE is a girl.
