    Thanks Teresaann... All along I had a feeling the first one that looks gray (actually black and white... lighting doesn't show it well)was a cockerel I am uncertain of the other one as well... the one that is buff, gray and white... it acts roo-ish but could just be a bossy pullet... I like your odds! [​IMG]

    I have been pretty good at sexing my own....Even my silkie friends around where I live always come to me to tell them what they got and so far I'v been correct [​IMG]
