    Hello again, I took some more pics of my 13 week old babies. I am begining to believe that out of 4 I have only 1 pullet. What do you think? They are a little upset from their bath, so they are not standing too nicely..
    This one has a large mulberry comb, its hard to see with all that fluff!

    Blackie has some brown feathers around its neck. Hopefully they will grow out?

    I sure can't guess the sex of your babies since I can't figure out what my two silkies are! But, just wanted to say how beautiful your babies are! Your 1st silkie is "ALL FLUFF"!

    I believe you are correct. You have 3 boys. The only one I am questioning is the black one, and the gold in the hackles most likely won't grow out. I believe it's a DQ.

    Quote:Thanks.. I am so annoyed with that little black one. That was a $49.00 chick. I ordered 12 eggs off a breeder on eggbid. 5 were not fertile and only one hatched. I wouldn't mind if it was nice quality, but what a waste of money. The poofy ones, I got off a breeder on ebay. Same price for 6 eggs and 3 hatched and they are beautiful! Thanks for the reply, I appreciate it!! [​IMG]
