    I can't tell but the folks over on the Silkie thread may be able to help you.

    Cute birds, hope you're enjoying them!

    G’Day from down under jakobi91 [​IMG] Welcome!

    I see you have posted on the Silkie Thread; fingers crossed for good news [​IMG]

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    If you would like to share more pictures and stories of your flock, you have come to the right place. BYC’ers never tire of these and do not back away slowly or commence eye rolling when the photo album or home videos come out [​IMG]

    Silkies are my favorite too!
    Can't wait for mine to get that big, their only 3 weeks.

    The last photo looks like a cockerel - very big comb. The other may be a pullet, has a narrow comb but not much crest. Are these hatchery silkies?? You can also post on the "Silkie thread,"
