    I'm sure its a longshot for sex but place your bets. I know most are silkies of some sort but 2 black ones confuse me especially cause they look like the other one but don't have feathered legs. Sorry not best pics they are buggers to catch. Duck guesses are welcome too.

    They are silkies too silkies don't have to have feathered feet or 5 toes or a top hat my red silkie has none of these but is pure breed, not at all show quality but still a silkie.

    Thanks I thought they were all silkies but I was told it had to have feathered feet. Ducks don't have their final feathers yet only 8 weeks was told we'd know better by 12 weeks or so...
