    I know I have 1 roo, because he has been crowing since like 8 weeks. I think I have 3 roos and hopefully 5 pullets, but I'm not really that sure. I have trouble telling some of them apart. I have 7 white and 1 that I think is blue. So are any pullets, and are they decent quality? I bought from a breeder that shows, but I know there is no guarantee on the offspring. They range in I think 4-6 months in age.

    Wow, they're beautiful! I'm no judge of silkies, as my only experience is WANTING them!

    Surely someone on here can tell you what you need to know...

    The ones that look like #3..... big round poofy heads and small combs... pullets... the ones that look like #4 .. streamers that slick back more on the head and big wide combs... cockerels.

    Having raised Silkies for awhile, I would say they are to young to tell from the pictures. Here is a site dedicated to Silkies with lots of information.http://www.silkiechickens.com/learn.htm. Good Luck!
