    Hey guys i'm new to this whole raising chickens thing. I got 5 chicks about 8 weeks ago and I already had to get rid of two because they were roosters so I was wondering if my younger blue ash silkie and easter egger are hens or rooster. They have not started crowing yet. Thanks.

    The Easter Egger is a pullet. The Silkie is too young to tell.

    And the color if the silkie is blue. When you're typing ash I think you mean splash, but it's not splash, just blue.

    oh, and
