    Hello everyone,

    This is my first time raising chickens and I have a few suspected cockerels in the flock. I would greatly appreciate any input. They are all around 3 months.

    This is marshmallow our white silkie


    This is perogas our black silkie. It seems like all of our chickens are growing except for her/him.


    This is schatzi our silver laced polish


    Finally this our olive egger, thyme.


    Thanks again!

    Welcome to BYC! Looks like Thyme is a roo. I'm not sure about the others, sorry.

    Polish and the Olive Egger are cockerels. The Silkies are a little young yet but if I had to guess today, I'd say the white one is a pullet and the black one is a cockerel. They really need more time to mature for more accurate estimations.
