    Pretty sure I am working with 3 silkie roos here - the frizzle and one other black one have green shiny feather in their tails, gulp.

    thoughts?

    Could you get close ups of each Silkie? Especially of their combs.

    Looks like your darker buff and the black one farthest from the camera in the 1st picture are roos. Im leaning towards roo on the sizzle too. Do you know what generation sizzle it is? I think they are so much harder to sex than silkies!
