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!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
