    Bought the 3 white ones as a breeding trio...did I get what I paid for? 2 hens and a rooster:

    I'm suspecting that this one is a rooster; but I wanted the experts to chime in and let me know:

    How old is the one in the last 2 pics? s/he has the wrong comb which complicates the matter. Also would you beable to get a pic of him/her standing naturally?

    the trio of white silkies is 1 boy and 2 girls

    Yay on the white silkies being a trio!! Unfortunately, I can't get any more pics of the gray one as he doesn't live with me. But here's another shot I already had on my phone:
