    She's a pullet right? Oh god if she's not I am gunna be heartbroken and curse myself for buying her D:
    I'm so afraid I made a bad decision in getting her. Her name was Desiree, but it'll be Sunflower now.

    Is 10 weeks old enough to sex? My rooster with a bit of partridge in him still looked normal at that age. The colour change didn't hit till a bit later and then it was a very dramatic change.

    Thank you! :)
    I think she's really pretty too- a lot of people were interested in her but I had first choice since I expressed interest first! She's sooo sweet. :) So different in temperament compared to my cockerels.​

    Yay! I am so glad this seems to be the general consensus! Such a relief after ending up with three boy silkies haha!​

    It was more the colour I meant was it too early. Its a partridge silkie and can be colour sexed so if male will start getting the red gold on the breast and back. Mine didn't colour up till I think 14-16 weeks I thought.
