    I know these arent the best picture. But I am wondering if anyone can give me their best guess as to what sex these two are.
    These are my first chickens and I dont have a clue what they could be.

    I was told by a very good silkie breeder the "streamers" off the back of the head are roos. Looks like, if that is true the last pic is a boy

    They say Silkies or bantams are the hardest to sex bc they are so small. Others have mentioned that up until an egg or a crowing moment you can not hardly tell. [​IMG]

    I just love the picture and uploaded it. My wife is the Hair-Do lover and is the driving force that got me on board. I want some Polish so bad and I love the Mottled Houdan's crazy hair do. I think this image is a male and we can not have any roos in town. I cant wait. I decided to get a Silver, White, Gold, Blue, Black Splash and a buff. I heard the White Sultans are hard to get but extremely rare and hard to get but very nice birds with soft dispositions. I am waiting for the spring time bc they are easy to get than during less productive time as in winter. The entire flock I will be able to get as chicks and not so easy as over runs from the hatcheries. They will sex them and 90% chance is better than Straight runs in the winter with minimums of larger numbers than I want. Thanks for the compliment but It will not be real until April 2012 for us but exciting never the less.
