Hi Jed! What is the best age to sex silkies?
I sure hope so! They’re only 5-6 weeks old. But one of them, named BlueBell Sprinkles is only 5 days so (s)he will have to wait but I’ll try the others!
Yeah, 5 days is too young. But 5-6 weeks is okay. We'll mainly be looking at combs unless they are beardless and have wattles. It's a good idea to photograph them later in the day. The light is better and they are more mellow. Usually.
Sounds like a plan! ;)
You are very talented when it come to chicken breeds and genders! In a few weeks (maybe 8 weeks) you might need to help me sex my silkies! :P ^_^
Yes, they can be. The older, the better with them, usually. We have some Silkie experts in the forums that are better than me with that breed, but I will definitely give my opinion.
I’d really appreciate it! Thank you so much JedJ!
Jed, I very much enjoy your comments on "What breed or gender is this." Hopefully I can retain some of the great information you dispense.
Thanks. I always enjoy your comments as well- you are knowledgeable and fun.
