    Am I right in assuming no 3 is a boy?

    Silkies can be tricky to sex, but she looks like a pullet to me.

    Silkie #1 looks like a pullet, and so does #2. I think that #3 is a pullet as well. But, Silkies are hard to sex, so I'd post more photos in a couple more weeks for another opinion.

    Yes I had heard that but I just think they are so cute with all their fluff, that I decided to take a bit of a gamble and chose 3 that I thought were girlier out of them.

    I hadn't, but I just looked. I'm thinking pullet on all three of them.

    Thanks, it'll be interesting to see. I'll post some more photos in a couple of week.
