    So I"m trying again with my silkies. They are now just over 8 weeks old.

    Here's the three of them together

    My black silkie. Started out as the smallest and is now the largest. Starting to grow a comb but no wattles.

    Blue number 1. Not sure about either of the blues but no wattle or comb

    Blue number 2. This is the smallest of the three and the most skittish until I place em in my hands

    The first buff silkie is definitely a rooster the comb is a dead giveaway, and for the second silkie I would say a pullet, her crest is very feminine and I don't see anything else that would indicate a rooster on her.

    It's hard to tell by the flash but I would say a Blue silkie, but another picture without flash would help too.
