    I'm trying to double check on my silkie genders before we need to rehome some. We already know that the dark partridge is male due to his coloring I was able to ask and get confirmation at an earlier age. so I didn't include individuals. They are 5 months old and all the possible males especially the black and the paint have started fighting chest bumping and such. I am hoping that at least one of the whites is a female and I'm 99% sure the very light partridge is female. Thanks for any help.

    Thank you. Guess I am getting better at sexing them since you are thinking the same. Was hoping I was wrong though 4 roosters from 6 hatching eggs!
