    Hello ! I have 2 silkie babies and 1 Cochin. They're a little over 2 months old now so I'd like an opinion on genders.

    Here is the Silkie, Granger.

    I'm thinking the Cochin is a pullet since she's 2 months old already with no comb.

    Silkies are hard to sex sometimes, the first one looks to be potentially a male, and the other one a pullet. I believe you are right that your cochin is a pullet.

    Way to early for silkies. Usually 4-5 mos. is when you can tell accurately . Not sure about your cochin.

    I'll do this again in 2 months,then :b What about the cochin makes you wonder ? I just think pullet because my current rooster looked like this at 2 months.
