    So far, they all look like pullets. However, it is way too young to be sure.

    Silkies are very hard to sex. But as of now, they look like pullets.[​IMG]

    They still look like possibly all pullets. But, Fuzzy does have a wide comb, so watch "it". And, Nugget's crest is beginning to look like it could be developing streamers.

    They all act very calm and love running and flying around and just randomly jumping up in the air
