    [​IMG] I bought straight run baby chicks in May. I was told they were RIR's and Silkies. They are roughly 7 months old. No eggs and no crowing as of yet. Can you help me determine the sex?

    Silkie is a rooster, the RIR also looks to be a rooster, i think i see pointy saddle feathers, and the dark glossy patch on the wing, but closer picture from the side like in pic 2 would help, pic 3 is tilted away from the tail.

    Do you have 5 different birds posted in this picture? I thought that some of these pics were of the same bird.
