    Awesome! I sure hope you're right. I'm a bit worried about the black one and the white one.

    All look like pullets to me. Perhaps just establishing a pecking order?

    So I have bought 4 silkies and so far I'm positive of two of them being Roos and honestly the two younger ones I'm about 99% sure expect ally since my buff started crowing at 2 months old! I pretty sure his side kick is a roo though which means I'm going to have to break them up and get rid of them but
    Hoping maybe I'm wrong?

    The white one I'm questioning[​IMG][/IMG]

    Hi this is my white silkie who is now 10months old. As of yet we've had no eggs and its not crowed either. Saying that she is rather noisey - clicking noises but louder than my others. I noticed today that her comb is a slight red colour and now I'm concerned she is really a he? Can anybody help out please? X
