    he always stands up tall and stuff! hes a little more skittish than the other one too!

    this is the one im pretty sure is a hen. she just looks like one to me.

    i think she is really pretty! this is only my second time having silkies and my first time with white ones!
    but anyways I'm hoping these are a rooster and a hen. because im wanting to breed them and also mix breed them with some of flock.

    If they are the same age, you have a pair. I have silkies( both white and black) and the cockerel is larger than the pullets. (I also have Great Pyrenees to guard my poultry and goats)
