    Looks like three roos to me. I say you have two buffs with smut (black leakage) and a splash.

    i don't remember what i ordered! i thought it was 2 buffs and one blue? they are almost 5 months, but the problem is that i have another very dominant rooster that i believe is keeping any other roos i have quiet. if all 3 silkies are roos, i believe i have at least 6 roos in my flock of 30. anyway, not really interested in feeding that many roosters! so far no problems among them though. they are about 4 1/2 months old.

    thanks,
