    My little chooks are now 11 weeks... so... ROO OR PULLET?
    I'm not very worried about any of them (being roosters), but just wanted to be sure since this is my first flock.

    Not sure about the silkies,but look at the comb,the smaller,smoother ones are most likely girls,and the bigger ones are most likely boys. Other than that,wait till' they crow or lay an egg. Lol! [​IMG]

    All of the "regular" chickens are pullets.

    No clue on the silkies, I don't do silkies. But if I were to wager a guess, I'd say pullet, cockeral, cockeral.

    Usually the boy silkies would have bigger puff on their head. But that's what I base it on when I get white silkies. Also the comb. But I think the first one is a pullet, second.. Roo? and the third pullet?

    3 and 5 look like roo's with the tail feathers, leg size, and body shape. 1,2,4 are female all the way. Not sure about the rest.

    All of the regular breeds are so girlie they might as well hold a tea party after doing each other's nails.

    The silkies are too young to guess on. Most of them act like top secret agents protecting national security by disguising their gender.
