    Hi Everyone! I'm Christine and these are my silkies. I hatched them back in October. I need help sexing them. I've read they're hard to sex, but I'm hoping they're pullets. We re-homed their brothers because they crowed at 2 months old. These two are really quiet. What do you think? Pullets or cockerels?

    *Side note: I had to assist both of these chicks during their hatch...they are doing quite well. I'm so happy they're here. I love them so much. Both of them will lay in my arms flat on their bags and won't even squirm!

    I'm no silkie expert, but with those nice round puffs on top of their heads....i'd have to guess both are pullets!
