    This are some silkie crosses, dad is a blue silkie roo and mom is a red production hen, all three look like little pullets but im not sure, they are 14 weeks old.

    oh, they are all so pretty [​IMG] I think #1 is a pullet, #2 probbly a pullet, and #3 looks like it may be getting hackle feathers, but could still be a pullet. #1 is my fav. I have a blue silike roo and a rhode island red, if I ever see him getting with her, I will be hatching those eggs [​IMG]

    I can't tell, if I have to guess I have to say they are all pullets.[​IMG] They look like they all have dark skin, do they have 5 toes?

    In my experience they are all pullets. The ones that I hatched the roos were very colorful and the hens looked just like yours.
