    I realize this may be futile, but it keeps me up at night?!?!? What do ya'll think?
    Roo...or Hen? I think we are around 4 months old if that helps.

    A straight on face shot would help, but I am going to guess a Cockerel.

    If anybody is following this... I've taken for granted that the rest are pullets since I've been so worried about the silkie- would anybody weigh in on the rest of the group? I have better pictures if needed.
