    I have two silkies who are both about 12 weeks. I think the blue is a roo and the white is a hen, anyone else?

    That looks right. The blue is a male and the white a female. The males will get larger wattles. I did not know what my silkies were until I got 4 eggs one day and had 4 silkies. They were about 10 months old. I hope you don't have to wait that long!

    Thanks guys! Hopefully they'll both just say "just kidding lol" and pop out some eggs.
