    Hi Everyone,

    Below you will see photo's of my 6 week old babies. I know three od then are Black Silkies for sure. The other five I am unsure of as I purchased a bulk of eggs for my Hen to set on as I do not have a rooster.

    Any idea's as to the Breed and possible sex would be most helpful to me.

    Thank You all,
    DeeDee
