How can you tell the sex of a silky when young?
post #2 of 4

When they reach several months old, cockerels will get larger combs and such. If you post pictures of your Silkie, we could tell its gender for you.

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

Young Silkies are notoriously difficult to sex, even for experienced chicken owners. I would suggest posting pics of your Silkies at 2-3 months and let us take a look at them for you then.
