    I am needing to know if these are males. We get charged a $500 fine if we have roosters in city limits. Already have had to get rid of two because they were crowing. Haven't heard these ones crow yet, but starting to think they are males. Can someone please confirm. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Probable pullets- I can't see their combs well. how old are they (Silkies). For silkies, to be positive of gender buy at point of lay or actual laying hens. They are very difficult to sex young - if people quarantee the sex of young silkies - run for the door.
