    You chickens are so cool. I'm thinking hens too, but I'm unfamiliar with the Houdans...you'll wanna ask a breeder. ^_^

    Aww thanks!! I have a sinking feeling that Silkie#1 and the houdan are boys.. I've been pretty lucky with them I guess. I do have some neat chickens. I like variety in my backyard so I have one of everyone [​IMG] or want to any way. I should start a thread just to show off all of them.

    EDITED:

    Ok so I did start a thread with all of them [​IMG]

    I don't know anything about Houdans (but SO CUTE!) I agree though that they 2 silkies look like pullets to me. [​IMG] I'm jealous!

    to me silkie 1 looks to be roo its neck feathers(hairs lol) seem a bit more slinder and pointed than silkie 2. silkie 2 looks to be pullet. 3rd looks like a pullet...check the hackle feathers(neck feathers) if they are long slinder and pointed at the tips its a roo if rounded at the tips the pullet (wont be long and slinder eaither)
