Silkie boy or girl. Can anyone tell?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

These are my 2 babies. I got them from a breeder just last week and they are my first silkies ever.  I know it is hard to sex these guys when they are so young, but I am hoping someone here might be able to tell. The breeder thinks that the gray one is a male due to the blue on his cheeks.

I think they are both pullets because they have a fairly tame poof on top, but the blue on the earlobe is not an indicator of a male there are plenty of females that have the coloration on their ear. Oh and welcome to BYC.
