    Here are pics. of my 9-week-old silkies . . . never had them before and wondering if anyone can tell if they are hens or roosters.

    What colors would they be classified as?

    Thanks.

    They all look like hens to me I'd say the 1st def is not sure on the colour perhaps partridge?

    Thanks! I thought they all looked like hens myself but wasn't completely sure. This is the first time I've had them. I absolutely LOVE them!!!

    The all look like pullets. The darker, brown ones are partridge. Not sure about the lighter, white one.
