    Hi guys,

    Can you tell if my darling Lemon is male or female?

    This one is of Satay who we think is a boy and Lemon who we are unsure of.

    They are 14 weeks old and I haven't had any eggs nor crowing as yet. Lemon does have a wattle which none of the other seem to have.

    Any idea guys?

    I'd say boy for both but silkies can have you guessing till an egg or crow. wait till than, might be around 6 months

    I think the white one is also a boy.

    I hope she is a pullet...I'm pretty sure Satay..the brown one is a boy!

    His/her tail is down in this pic.
  5. They both look like cockerels.

    the width of the comb on the white leds me to think that that ones a cockerel and so is the other one it looks like

    I am not that great on sexing to be honest but I have quite a few silkies and I would say boy, it seems to have quite a big comb and wattles! Sorry!
    I hope I am wrong!
