    Beautiful chicks still a bit young but On the one in the top pic on the left could be a pullet.

    Ha ha! Thanks...this was their first photo shoot! I just got them within the last month. The showgirls were living up to their names. The silkies were not so thrilled...

    EDITED to add: I have changed my mind from what I wrote below- see my post that follows down the page.........

    I am not convinced the white silkie on the left is a pullet. Are those streamers coming out the top of the crest? I do think the one on the right is a roo.

    I have never seen such cute showgirls! I really didn't think I liked showgirls- but yours are really cute!

    (Until they lay or crow...it is really a guess! But I like guessing.) [​IMG]

    Cute birds! [​IMG] Those naked neck ones look like they are wearing some big furry Siberian fluffy hats or something!

    Thanks....I haven't had them very long but really am enjoying the little things. These are the first small chicks I have had. It is fun watching them grow and play. I didn't think I liked/wanted silkies till I had one on loan for some doctoring. It was the funniest thing ever.

    I am not sure about "streamers"? They have little tufts on the end of some of their feathers that come off if you tug on them. Looks like dandelion seeds! The white one is very timid and the others tend to push it around. Of the two showgirls (aren't they bizarre looking?) the darker one that I think may be a roo seems to be more forward as well. As you said...time will tell but it is fun to guess!

    I think you are correct on both sets.
