    They are adorable! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Unfortunately, they're too young to tell. You won't know for sure until they're 6/7 months old. [​IMG]

    silkies are hard to sex the best time to sex them is when the first crow is well crowed lol or the first egg is layed. but they sure are cute

    I definitely vote for cute too. It looks too early to tell.

    Your greys are actually blue. Too young to tell. Wait a few more months, then we can help you.
