    I Have 5 white silkies about 4 months old. Any guesses on sex? I'm hoping for 2 or 3 pullets. #1 has a noticble comb so I figured roo. The others don't. #1 also has very noticble streamers.

    I'm not the greatest at Silkies, but none of them look like obvious males to me.

    It's hard to tell. I would repost pics in another month or so. I could see it go either way.

    It would help if they were cleaned up, their crests are so messy, can't tell if they have full crests like females, or pushed back like males (due to larger comb forming)

    Ill be sure tobpost pictures later on when older. #4 and #5 are pretty poofy crests more so than the others but like I said only one showing a comb in person has me thrown. Only time will tell. Its just so hard to wait on the first crows and eggs lol

    Considering that some of those are beardless and/or clean legged, I doubt that going off of the crest shape is going to be accurate.
