Silkie gender test

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so most of my white silkies are exhibiting clear male behavior. They crow, harass the ladies, and have distinct mulberry or at least big combs and/or wattles. This one I'm not so sure about.

Any opinions?

I'm guessing that's a boy. The swept back poof, streamers and the large comb say boy to me. My girl is a buff and her poof is very rounded and she doesn't have those streamers coming out the back like yours does. How old are they? Mine are 3 months and the girl barely has a comb.  Also, it looks like yours has shiny pointy looking hackle feathers.  I'm curious to see how it turns out. My white one I think is a boy too :(

Yeah I'm afraid that means seven of my nine are boys. I am just not sure I want to try silkie stew either...
