    Well I finally managed to snap some new photos of my chickies. I was hoping I could get confirmation on sexes, and color definitions for my silkies. They are all 11 weeks old (as of this past Tuesday).

    Elmo - RIR Roo

    Kirk/Neera - BR Roo/Hen?

    She's got this pretty blue/green sheen coming in on her feathers. Is that normal?

    Star - EE Hen?

    Both of my silkies have blue ear lobes like in this pic. Is that normal?

    Thanks for taking a look!

    ETA: I'm sorry but it seems to be cutting some of my pictures off, and I don't know how to fix that.

    Kirk/Neera is a Kirk! And I'd say Star is a hen. Sorry - I wouldn't hazard a guess on the silkie.

    Thanks everyone!

    It was like 55 degrees and sunny yesterday, and now they're calling for snow tomorrow. Silly winter, I want spring!

    I had kinda figured Kirk was a Kirk, but had hoped for a Neera. LOL! I [​IMG] Star Trek!

    The silkies have me a little confused. I'm thinking Fuzz Ball's a boy, and Chole (which I spelled really wrong in the first post) is a girl. And the colors I'm not positive on. I ordered blues, but Chole seems kinda black. But I don't have any others to compare them to, so who knows!
