    I have one confirmed rooster, but think I might have five more. Out of 18 pullets, I'm hesitant to say this has happened. Pictures in comments. All are friendly, no aggressive behavior and no real rooster stance.

    I was told this is a jersey giant, purchased as a pullet (They all were)

    Anyone? I've heard that they're all roosters, but I have yet to see crowing.... My Easter egger boy is crowing so I'm assuming these guys would too.

    Cockerel. What type of comb does he have? If a single comb he's a Barred Plymouth Rock.
    This one could be a pullet, because at five months cockerels should be crowing and have saddle feathers. I'd wait.

    Sorry I can't help with the silkies.
