    These “girls” were given to me today by a lady who needed to reduce her flock immediately. I have three hens currently and will start the lengthy process to integrate them this week. I cannot have roosters, I think the polish looking one is a rooster. I am hoping the Silkie is a hen. Neither have bright red combs (both pink), and both are friendly. The Polish stands up tall most of the time. Ive never had any breeds like this. Thoughts?
