    Anyone have any guesses about the genders of my silkies? I have one that is a confirmed female, but she's older than these guys. I don't really know how old these ones are now.

    Terk - pullet? I sure hope so. (Clucks instead of peeps now!)

    Kiara (Simba?) - this one beats the others up constantly (has done so ever since we got him/her) and will probably have to go.

    I think the 1s one is a definite pullet...not sure about the other two yet.
    The 3rd one is probably a cockerel.
    2nd one looks like it could go either way, can't see any comb or wattles yet, and its crest looks like it could be developing streamers soon...hard to tell though [​IMG]

    Its sounding like we're right in our guesses of Terk being pullet and Kiara being a cockerel. Really hoping Terk is a pullet..[​IMG]
    Thanks guys!
