Genders on 2 silkies

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Not really sure on how to sex silkies. BIBBITT (closer) and BOPPITY (further) are 15 weeks



post #2 of 6

I don't see anything screaming cockerel at this point, besides the fact that one is much larger than the other. Silkies are very hard to sex, so I would recommend reposting updated pics in a month or so to be sure. 

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Agreed.

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!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
