    Just wanted to share that my surprise clutch of mixed black silkie and EE (hen was silkie, roo was EE) are now old enough to definately weed out the genders.. of the 5 that hatched 4 have turned out to be pullets. Only one rooster!! This is such luck for me as I have always had the exact opposite happen before! Will try to get pictures on soon.. the babies now approximately 12 weeks old appear similar to a EE only with some feathering on the feet.. They even have the little cheek muffs. So cute.
