Heya I am new to keeping chickens. I got two silkies 3 months ago there now about 4 months old. We asked for both to be female and we were aware that its very hard to sex chicks. I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out as to whether our silkies are male or female. I am so sorry but my terms and descriptions will probably be awful as I still have not caught up on chicken lingo (",)
One of the silkies is smaller than the other not hugely but you would definately notice it.The smaller ones feet are much smaller than the others. Also the bigger one has developed quiet a large blackish comb?? on his/her head. The smaller one doesn't appear to have this. I'm not sure as to whether they all have this or not to be honest as in many of the photos on google images they are all super fluffy and its hard to see their heads :)
My info is very bitty I know but hopefully you will be able to see by the attached photos.
Boo Bear is the Bigger one and he/she is in the 1st, 2nd and 4th photos
Miss Henny Penny is the smaller one and he/she is in the 3rd photo.
I may have to change their names though eek :)
Thanks a million.
