    i think there all hens.
     
  3. With those slicked-back crests and decent sized combs/wattles, I'm thinking all roos. [​IMG] But it's kind of early.

    Not to completely steal this thread... but what all do you look at for silkies?
    I saw the post about slicked back crests, combs, wattles....
    Would like more info about the crests... what would a hens look like at this age?
    Mine were born May 10th and I have NO clue on them.
