    The middle one is a roo for sure but the other two are questionable.
    If I had to guess, #1 would be a hen and #3 a roo. It's so hard with silkies. You usually have to wait for them to either crow or lay an egg!! [​IMG]

    The top one is a nice gray girl and the white is a roo followed by a light gray roo on the bottom. Birds are of pretty decent quality with the white having some good type but smaller crest and too large of a comb. The gray hen looks to be very nice and round with good coloring and no sign of red in the gray, which is very good and sometimes hard to come by.

    The 1st is a blue pullet, the 2nd a white roo, the 3rd a splash roo. These are my opinions.
