Silkie chicks, male or female?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 


Hi guys, I have 3 Silkie chicks all 7/8 weeks old. All were supposed to be hens but I'm pretty sure the tall one is a little roo any suggestions x

Silkies are extremely difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age- sometimes not even till they crow or lay eggs. At this tender age, the best you can get is wild guesses. I would like to see front view so I can see the combs on them. Did they come from a hatchery or breeder? They certainly have tons of feathering.

Thanks guys will take some pictures in the morning. The tall one which I think is a roo has defiantly got a complete different personality then the other two. Always running around trying to get into everything, the others are more layed back x
