    Looks to me like you have a Rooster, pullet and another pullet!

    My silkies didn't crow/lay eggs until around 16-18 weeks old.
    So, I would expect something to happen soon! heh...

    Good luck!

    They are cute! Have you tried crowing in front of them? It always works for me! The young roo
    will try to outdo you!(Of course, you end up looking pretty stupid!)
