    "A" has bright blue ears while "B"'s ears are much duller by comparison. Is ear color any indication?

    Also, I think I see streamers on "A"....

    Thanks for your input!

    Silkie B is a pullet, I'm not so sure about silke A she could be a pullet too.

    Silkie B is definitely a pullet, but I'm not sure about Silkie A. For now, though, I'm going to say that both are pullets.

    Oh wow, that is a surprise! I was already starting to look for a place to re-home what I thought would turn out to be a cockerel. Thanks for the good news [​IMG]!
