    My
    silkie chicks are now 7 weeks old. I think the first buff is a roo ????? This is Moose, silkie #1

    I am hoping this is a hen so we end up with a breeding pair. Any ideas?? This one is called Spot because it had a spot on it's head as a chick, silkie #2

    [​IMG]

    This is silkie #3. It's name is Puff because of the large puff it used to have on it's head. We were thinking this was also a roo and that it's a blue.

    This is silkie #4. Her (hopefully) name is Veronica. Some have said she's a Self blue, others a lavender. Any opinions on gender and color??

    This is a new silkie, #5. It's only about 4 weeks old. Do you think it's a blue or black?
