    Hi everyone! Thanks for looking and helping me figure this out. They are 9 weeks old. Two are blues, and one is a black silkie. They are all the same size, all three are very docile. No one is crowing or making any suspicious sounds.

    I would say girls but silkies are notorious for being difficult to sex so for more opinions and advice for spotting roosters why not post a few pics on the big fat is this a rooster thread:) :
