    I purchased 6 silkies from Ideal...they sent 7 males "for warmth." How accurate is this? Do I really have 7 males now? I have been trying to figure out what type of breed they are in hopes that all of them are not Roo's! What will I do with all these darling boys? Do I have a chance for a lil girls in there?! LOL

    I think they are really too young to tell yet. Either that or I'm just not experienced enough to tell myself.

    Most people refer to them as "packing peanuts". I have seen one post where they got a female peanut. Very rare to get a girl. There's always freezer camp.

    They look like RIR or production reds, too early to tell sex.
