My silkie(pippin) is about 3-4 weeks old. Pippin is Grey and his feathers are VERY scriggly and curly and messy at the back. I will shortly post a picture. What Gender?? Any help is awesome!! Pic:

I can't tell by the picture. Because Silkies are so hard to sex, I would recommend waiting at least another month and then repost pics (making sure to include full body pictures especially the comb).

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

agree    much too young, and you have the head cut off.  What are we supposed to look at?    4-5 mos. of age is much better

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."
