So I asked a while ago on Queso and Gravy and I just wanted to update.

Yes they are both pullets. Love that!
How about colors now? Does everyone still believe Queso is a blue? And Gravy a splash? These two are about 4.5 months old.

Now I know salsa is a cockerel. He is 3 months old.

But what color is he? He was supposed blue and looked blue as a chick, but now has some gold in the chest area.

Now I’m still confused on everything about Mochi. She is 3 months. I think she is a pullet because her comb is like gravy and quesos but I would like second opinions. Also what color is she? Blue or Black? She was blue as a baby and sold as a blue but she is really dark. Maybe just a dark blue?

These next two are polish that I was pretty sure were cockerels until I heard Kiwi crow. So definitely a cockerel and Moonpie looks like kiwi, so I’m still gonna go with cockerels but I do want more opinions. 3 months old.

I agree with you for all the silkies, BUT for the polish...honestly I am shocked Kiwi crowed. Maybe I am just bad with polish, but I expect more wattle and comb growth if they are cockerels...

Mochi is a pullet. She is blue.
Queso is a pullet. She is blue.

Blue can vary quite a bit, from very light, almost appearing lavender (but not) to almost appearing black (but not).

Gravy is a pullet. She is splash.

Salsa is a cockerel (as you know). He is mixed color, most likely has some partridge in his genetics. I have a similar pullet that is mostly black with tan chest and wings.

I think both your polish may be cockerels. Really tricky with these two. I find the silver laced polish the hardest to sex. I would also expect larger wattles by now with males. 😊
