    the black is indeed a cockerel and you can tell that by his streamers and messed up crest (now this is not always the case with the messed up crest) as for the blue it looks to be 100% pullet as there are no streamers at all

    The black had no streamers and i swore it was a hen till one day when i discovered the comb that looked like a nut haha and i wish i would have taken pics of him before i cut on his puff lol I had to cut it cause he could not see! and now it's a mess.

    Our silkie that I was most worried about had quite a noticeable comb. We were already assuming boy until we saw her pop out an egg!

    The black one is a boy but the other is most definitely a girl! [​IMG]

    Thank you all so much! I am thrilled that i at least have one girl! I have had such a hard time hatching and raising some of these and i was praying i would get a hen so they can hatch their own! [​IMG][​IMG]
