These two came from Ideal May 1. Honestly, not too impressed with the quality, but I was just looking for broodies for next year. Now, I'm re-thinking some breeding projects and thinning down some birds. I'm sure the buff bird is a pullet. I had a buff cockerel and there was quite a difference in comb and shading of the body color. The black bird I'm not sure on. I was trying to learn vent sexing when I got them, and have it listed as male, but not sure that means much . It does have quite a bit of comb for the age (6 months). So, silkie folks, help me out I did hear some pitiful crowing coming from the vicinity of this coop, but not sure if it's the black silkie or the little splash cockerel who lives with them.
