Silkie Genders?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I got two silkie baby's from my work about three weeks ago (They are three to four weeks old is my guess)
this is the bigger one

this is the smaller one

I call the bigger one Fluff and the smaller one Cotton. Just as I typed that Fluff charged my Golden Sebright Bantam hen Pharoah


I'm really hoping I have two hens. Could anyone tell me more? I'll be happy to take more pictures if needed

They're both too young to sex accurately, and I don't see any cockerel signs yet. Both males and females can exhibit fighting/charging behavior.

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."

MUCH too young to determine gender.   Silkies are one of the hardest breeds to  determine before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes NOT till they crow or lay eggs.  At younger ages  people can tell you whatever gender you want - it doesn't mean they will mature that way. Are these hatchery chicks?

Yes they are. I work at Tractor Supply and we get chicks in in the spring time and that's where I got them from
