Play... Guess that gender! (White Silkie)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have a 4 week old white Silkie. I know it's still early but what do you think? Hen or Roo?

I tossed a coin and it landed tails , so its a pullet. :lau

Have you possibly turned chick upside down to check??? :gig

 

Don't get mad at my HUMOR,,,,   By the way..   ONE BEAUTIFUL CHICK  :thumbsup   20 years ago I had a few silkies.  Got them as adult chickens rather than baby chicks.    Super Docile.

 

WISHING YOU BEST.. :hugs

Thanks, your right it would be about as accurate as tossing a coin! 😂 I wish I had more to compare it to but it's the only Silkie. I'm hoping this one is sweet.

silkies are very difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age, and some not till they crow or lay.  If it HAS to be pullet, the best thing is to buy point-of-lay or a laying hen.  Cuts out all the anxiety and worry about rehoming a cockerel.
