Hello. Just want to say hey as I am new to this forum. Well, I've been reading and lurking around for years and just now registered. I'm not new to chickens, had a few until recently when they stopped laying consistently. I live in town and can only have four hens so I don't have room for hens that don't lay. They have gone to live out in the country with a friend of mine. Anyway now I've gotten some new chicks. Not sure of the sex as most were only sexed at 85%. They are about 6-7 weeks old. 2 comets, 2 amerucanas, which might be Easter eggers, 1 Delaware, and 1 silkie. Mostly interested in finding out the sex of the silkie as I think the others will be a lot more obvious. Here's a picture from earlier tonight.

It's awfully early to evaluate a silkie but, it's looking like cockerel at this point.  Large comb and crest pushed back because of it. You can get many more opinions if you post at "what breed or gender is this."  I hope I am wrong.

Thanks! I hope you are wrong too. I really wanted a silkie but can't keep it if it's a rooster. We aren't allowed to have them in the city. As far as behavior goes, it is the one that gets pushed around the most. It is smaller as the rest of the chicks aren't bantams.

Hi and welcome to BYC - like NFLChick, i agree that DD is a bit of a silkie guru on silkies, but fingers crossed she slipped up with this one! (for  your sake) :)

 

All the best
