    The one in the first 3 pictures look roo. Picture 4 looks pullet so far. Is that an extra toe in picture 5? If so, wild guess silkie x ameracauna or EE? Picture 6 is light bahrama. Last picture splash polish.

    I'm no expert, but the back one looks like it has five toes, so I'd say that's a silkie cross. The baby looks like a light brahma, and I think that polish coloring is what they call splash . . . sorry, but I'll let "experts" guess the gender [​IMG]

    Nooooo! I really wanted the BLRW to be a pullet!!! The only age I know for sure is the Polish...they are 8 wks. That, at least gives a size comparison for the BLRW in the picture with them.

    I really can't afford to have one crowing before I rehome. I was told they have a squeaky phase before serious crowing starts...should I rehome now or give it time to watch and wait? When should I expect a crow?

    The black was being sold as a black faverolle but her comb is black...so (?)

    BLRW #1 is a roo and BLRW #2 is a pullet. See how his saddle feathers are pointy and don't have the lacing? She also has lacing over her entire body whereas he only has it mostly on his breast.

    Hmmm...I guess it's time to find him a new home!

    What about the pullet? Will her colors change as she gets older?
