I have this Silkie, about 5 months old, and I'm wondering the gender, I'm leaning on the rooster side, but you can never be totally sure with young silkies, what do you guys think? Oh and the two other white silkies are his/her mom and dad and the partridge is his nanny who hatched him
Your birds are very nice.post #57913 of 621521/27/16 at 6:16pmpost #57914 of 621521/27/16 at 9:07pmpost #57915 of 621521/28/16 at 12:01amQuote:
my experience, I noticed around 5 months old. I have 1 rooster Barney. He stands taller than the girls and the feathers on his neck are long straight. he had the good sense to keep quiet while my olive egger roosters were around. since rehoming them Barney starts crowing as soon as the it gets light.post #57916 of 621521/28/16 at 6:48amQuote:He's a cutie.Originally Posted by getrealQuote:my experience, I noticed around 5 months old.

They would be called BUFF. Some Buff are without the black leakage
and they are usually show birds. All Silkies are FINE with us. All
colors are fine. It is just a matter of choices. We have a mixed flock
blue, buff, white, white splash, gray, gray splash. Regards, AriaSilkie Chickens Are A JoySilkie Chickens Are A Joypost #57918 of 621521/29/16 at 6:19ampost #57919 of 621521/29/16 at 6:41amNikki

They look like mostly whites (gold based white with the yellow on their down), but I suppose they could be buff. If you have one that looks blue, it probably is. The brown chick with the stripes doesn't look like a Silkie, so I have no idea. It might help if you post an individual picture of each color you've got. And maybe their little wing feathers if they have them
One has stripes
And one gets darker steadily. Smutty tail now.
Thanks for the help.
