3 month old silkies- male or female?? - Page 2

post #11 of 16

3 mos. is  too early to sex silkies,    I'd guess the first is a male,  the second I don't know  because it has a straight comb and it should be a walnut one.  I don't know therefore if it is too large a comb for a young female- being dark it's not going to redden if/when she nears point of lay.

I'm guessing this, too.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

I let them out to run the coop today, so here they are in their more natural stance, alternative photos of Chicken One (Headshot)



Alternative photos of Chicken 2 (Hedgehog)

 

 

 

At the very least, if impossible to sex before they're crowing or laying, they're a hoot to watch and so, so adorable! Their 5 toes crack me up.

Do you know the answer to your question yet?  Male or female?  Were the guesses correct?

I don't know :( I only had the two, but I had a lapse in my schedule one night and forgot to close my chicken coop. Despite not having had any predator problems or a chicken loss since I got my older fowl in March, I ended up losing both of them that night. :(

Oh...... that is awful!  I'm so sorry.  Thanks for replying anyway. :-)
