My silkies are a little over 4 months. The black one is a little bigger than the blue one. They don't act like roos, but that could be because they are low on the pecking order. So far I haven't seen them crowing (we have too many roos to just hear crowing). The roos treat them like hens, and the hens treat them like hens.

Black Silkie

Blue Silkie


Both of them together

I don't have much experience with Silkies, but I believe you have a pullet (black) and a cockerel (blue). Hope I could help.

I'm kind hoping for a male and female. Which one do you think is the pullet?
Also the Blue one is super soft and the Black one is slightly coarser.

Thanks. I got them for a member of my 4-H club who ended up not wanting them. I originally didn't want silkies because I thought they'd get dirtier than the others. Now they are some of my favorite flock members.
