    I'm selling some of our silkies today. The first one I'm pretty sure is a hen. #2 and 3 my husband wants to keep one of them because they have a white beak - I think they might both be roos though. If they look like they could be then I will add them to the sell pen!
    Thank you!!

    I know they are hard to sex but maybe someone who has more experience than me could help. Plus these guys are a little older so I thought maybe it was possible to tell [​IMG] I have one (not pictured) that is clearly a roo already but the rest I can't tell!

    Where did you get your Silkies? It's strange they have white beaks.
