Looking to get some help on sexing my two silkies, they are about 10-13 weeks.
I think it would be best if you posted this on this thread https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/579215/silkie-sexing/1220#post_11863886 they have silkie experts that will give you more accurate answers.
you will want close UPS of their face, so we can get a good look at the comb. Silkies can be tough to figure..mine are the same age and wev been back and forth on them!!
Going by stance only since there's no comb close-ups, I'd say the first one is a cockerel and second possibly a pullet.. just educated guesses though
The first one looks like a cockerel and the second looks like a pullet.
Thanks much! We were thinking the same thing…now we have to decide if we want to keep a boy lol
The white one looks like it has no wattle development at all, and male unbearded silkies usually have obvious wattles by 13 weeks of age. So I'm not convinced it's male. A head-on picture of the comb would be helpful.
I think that they are both pullets.
