Hi guys Here are three little 7.5 week old chicks from a mixed batch of bantams being raised by my Silkie, Lulu. These ones came from eggs marked 'pekin frizzle'. While they are definitely bantams I'm unsure of what kind. In your opinion are they pekins? I'm thinking the black lacy looking one looks like it's crossed with a silkie, in real life this is a stunning bird and has the most gorgeous ostrich feather type tail curling over toward it's back. As for the other two barred ones, one is frizzley but one seems to be not frizzley at all. Can that happen occasionally? Also would you mind telling me whether you think they're male or female? I've got a feeling the little lacey black one is male because his head feathers are so narrow (that's what silkie males look like when they're little). The other two I can't tell except they seem to have the little side dangly bits....you can tell I'm an amatuer Oh and while you're at it...somebody STOP ME, I want to keep them all!
