    hi everyone it has now been quite a few weeks, we have had all sorts of crazy stuff happen in that time but now I’m back to wondering... what gender are my baby’s.

    Phoebe is a pullet.
    Mati is a cockerel.
    Lucky could be either. I think pullet, but you're going to have to wait 2 or 3 more weeks to know for sure. If Lucky is a Silkie cross, then the other parent must be a breed with a single comb, like Pekin/cochin bantam, and not a Polish, which have the little devil horn combs.

    Yeah I thought that too, it could be the scarring on her head causing her feathers to stick up like that, she was attacked by her mother as a chick that’s why we got Mati and Lucky and the heat brooder

    I couldn’t leave her to die in the wet, no wait she was attacked by the other broodys after she fell down the ramp and couldn’t get back to her mum and then she tried to go under the other broodys and they attacked her, she was covered in blood so I rushed her to my neighbors who knew what to do so the next day I went and bought Mati and Phoebe. Mati was supposed to be a girl

    I agree Phoebe is a pullet, Mati a cockerel ~ & I suspect Lucky is also a pullet, but I don't know much & could be very wrong.

    I hope your right....
    Lucky and Mati are both special, if they are both roosters and fight then I will pick Lucky as (s)he is the one I saved and I put so much effort into caring for it
