    Any guesses? I'm pretty new to chickens and have no idea. I don't see anything roo but I've always thought of it as a boy. I know it's too early to tell with my silkies but I want to have an educated guess as to what at least one of my chicks is, lol.

    My understanding is you can't sex silkies this early. It takes like 6 months to sex the buggers!

    I thought you couldn't tell with silkies because of their feathers/ combs? My chick has normal feathers and a single comb(although it's black).
