    Seriously? [​IMG]
    I was convinced the larger one was a boy.

    Quote:98% sure. Myabe a super-silkie expert (of which i am not, though i am a silkie enthusiast) like Sonoran Silkies could give you a 100% answer..but both look like gals to me!

    I vote, you can't tell at 11 weeks. Sorry I couldn't tell with mine until they were almost 6 months.

    Just wait, if there's a boy he'll probably start crowing soon! My blue Silkie cockerel Mister started crowing at 12 weeks. I can't really tell gender from those pics, but are they bearded Silkies? The 3 white Silkies that I have are non-bearded, and they look a lot different lol. They're all pullets, and they had really tiny combs at that stage. Like Ginbart, I still had a Silkie that I couldn't tell if it was a boy or girl 'til it was 6 months old. It's a partridge, and I was CONVINCED it was a girl..'Til he finally started crowing lol.

    You've got some real cuties there though, no matter the gender! [​IMG]

    I'm usually sure by the 3 month mark, but one time my little Randy, who I was certain was a girl, was a BOY! :O To this day, I never name my girls boy names...[​IMG]
    It looks like you've got 2 girls. Congrats [​IMG]
