    Got these at auction last night. I know one is a roo (he has a loud crow) and the other seems to be a pullet (no crowing).

    The roo (now named MEL)

    The what we think is pullet, now named FLO

    And, ok first time at auction so my husband got a little confused and won these three THINGS.. we just have them running all over. Any clue WHAT they are? They are very little and very docile.

    The 2 white silkies look like both roosters to me. I can't see the other 3, they look like pullets.

    Oh no, I was hoping the second was a pullet. The first has been crowing a lot but the second hasn't at all. :(

    My Grandmother thinks the 3 things are little "banties" whatever that means.

    The first Rooster, second possibly a hen I couldn't see it very well, i think a hen and the other three appear to be brown leghorn bantam pullets. Bantie just means a miniature chicken. They are awesome! :)

    Do you have a picture of the second silkie from the front? Her rear end looks like a hen, but I think I see a pretty big comb on her.

    The lil ones look like old english game hens.

    The three chickens in the third picture are probably Games.

    That is Flo there in the front. Her comb isn't as big as the other. But I have never had Silkies before... so I do not know.

    Still think it is a rooster. I see streamers and that is a large comb.
