    I agree, the silkie is a roo. Don't know about the others.

    The first 3 look like game hens to me and are kinda wheaton/blue wheaton in coloring.

    The silkie looks like a roo, kinda buff colored, but has a lot of black coloring, so is probably a mix between standard colors.

    I kinda thought the silkie was a mix but since I dont have any to compare it with was not totally sure. I have another post with some of dads rooster's- most of his hens I think are going to game hens of some color or another.
    So far Funky chicken is the only silkie they have. Dad saw him at a flea/farmers market and had to have him because he is so different.
    I am sure he will be glad to know funky might be a roo.

    thank you all for you help.

    I agree top and bottom hens are games, but middle hen looks like a cornish or cornish cross hen. No idea about the gender of the silkie
