    I know I have one boy in the bunch the little buff silkie, he has been crowing since he was just a few weeks old [​IMG] I'm just not sure on my partridge silkie and my mottled houdan. They were born in the beginning of August, so they are about 3 1/2 months old now. Let me know what you all think I've got, they are all staying just wondering if I ended up with all boys.

    The Houdan looks like a pullet. Not sure on the Silkie but leaning toward cockerel.

    The Houdan is a pullet and the Silkie I'd say is a cockerel.

    I think the mottled one is a pullet, but I'm not sure about that silkie...looks like it might be a boy.

    I agree with everyones guesses so far [​IMG]

    Andorian has an odd comb for a silkie. Is he a mix?

    The Houdan is a pullet for Sure and the Silkie I'd say is a cockerel most likely.

    Thanks all! I do really hope my mottled houdan is a girl, that would be awesome! [​IMG] I don't mind if the two silkies are boys, they are just too cute [​IMG] and my little buff silkie is a hatchery silkie that's why his comb is so funny looking. It even splits in the back into two combs. But he has some personality, if there wasn't a divider between him and my LF Cochin rooster I think he would try to take him on!

    Houdan looks like a pullet, and the silkies are both boys.
