I have been trying to get help on sexing my silkies, but I have had no luck... Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, please excuse my crazy friends taking pictures with my chickens!:P

I can be of no help but just wanted to say who wouldn't want their picture taken with those gorgeous birds of yours?! They are so pretty.

 

How old are they? That's important info when trying to sex young ones. I know silkies can be tricky.

Thank you so much! They are our new addition to our silkie breeding project, but I still don't know how to sex them:D They are around 13 weeks old.

Silkies are so difficult to sex, so I would recommend reposting pics in another month or so. 

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Not good with Silkies but I've read, the head feathering (round = pullets, tall = cockerels) & the comb development.  Need pictures of their combs too.
