    Sorry for the duplicate photos, I'm new to this! There are 3 birds total, the red, the buff and the black. I'm certain the red is a roo, he started crowing last week. The other two have been quiet so far but are old enough to start. My black Silkie is close to 8 months and the buff is just over 6. Thanks for the help! Fingers crossed we aren't 3/3 roosters over here!

    The black one looks like a pullet, but I think that the other two are roosters.

    Would it be normal for the two Roos to hang out together and be less interested in the pullet? I did purchase the two buffs together, maybe that is the reason for the bond? I haven't seen either buff attempt any mating with the black either. Are they too young yet? (black is oldest at 8 months, buff is youngest at about 6).

    Big thanks for the help!

    Both buffs look like roosters to me.
