    They are very pretty. I wish I had a splash. I want one so bad. I would say the first one is a hen but I am not sure about the second one.

    I hope you get the answer because mine are the same age and look like that too and I don't know what sex they are

    Very nice silkies! First one looks hennish to me, and the second looks rooish - but that could change in the next couple months!

    What I like about your "girls" is that they pose very nicely. I have a Splash almost 3 months old. And I can tell what she is. Hen or rooster. [​IMG]
