    Ok - I am having a tough time with these guys - I don't know what they are...I know the breed, but what is the gender?

    Is Marshmallow a boy or a girl? I am voting ROO and hoping for Roo...

    Next we have Sloppy Joe, or Joanne...also, what the heck kind of color is this? - Sorry this one is new and a little skiddish still, hard to take pics.

    This is Aster my EE - please say it's a girl, please...she's starting to look a bit rooish to me....I hope not!

    All look like cockerels, with the exceptions of the sizzle and the lighter grey silkies.

    How old are they? I also think candy corn looks less rooish than marshmallow. I can't tell on sloppy Joe/joanna. As for the color, I have no idea, but would love to know the color of all of them [​IMG]

    Thanks for the input! Marshamallow is 5 months - the other 3 silkies are 4 months and Willow the Sizzle is almost 3 months and Aster the EE is 3 months - crazy coloring on those 3 splash-like silkies...

    Quote:The "splash-like" silkies are greys.
