    I am hoping a silkie expert can help me here. I have 4 blue silkies that are between 15 and 16 weeks old from Cackle Hatchery. I am trying to determine male or female. The first 2 pictured are slightly bigger than the other two. None of them have any noticable combs or waddles.

    Thanks guys for the help. Any other silkie experts out there have an opinion?

    I am suspecting they are all female as well, but I am very surprised to get all females!
