    Hello! I’ve been convinced that most of my banties are roos, but lately, I’ve been thinking otherwise. I only have photos of one - a little silver laced cochin - but I’ll be able to get some of the other chooks later. They’re all 3-4 months. One is a Silkie, one is a Polish, and one is a RIR. Fingers crossed that they’re hens!

    Cockerel. Female pattern in laced varieties is a bit different...plus comb/wattle relative to age depending on if closer to 3 than 4 (3 months and 4 months makes a difference in comb/wattle meaning)
