    I got these from the bantam pen at my local poultry farm. Farmer told me they were seabrights. Is he right?

    I don't know the age but the Bantams are NOT sebrights. I know for sure.

    I didn't think so. I'm not so sure how much I can trust his expertise.

    The bantams aren't sebrights. The silkie looks 10-ish weeks old, and I'd say it's a cockerel.

    The Silkie looks to be around 8 weeks old, definitely a roo.

    Thanks everyone. I'm going to try to get a pic of each silkie and let you tell me what the other one is. LOL. I don't know what I'm looking for. Farmer told me I had a boy/girl combo, but as you can see from above, I should get a 2nd opinion.

    Thanks.

    I breed Sebrights, and those are NOT sebrights. They might be a sebright mixed with an old english game. But they are NOT sebrights. I would also say that they sebright is a boy.

    Here's a pic of my silkies together. I don't know if you can tell anything from this pic. I can't even tell them apart. LOL. Any guesses on gender?
