    They are about 9-10 weeks at this point. My first silkies! Edwardo is the blue and Ellowen is the partridge. I think Ellowen is growing quite the head poof compared to Edwardo but she/he(?) is a lot bigger than him/her.

    Both look like pullets to me, for now. However, Silkies are notoriously difficult to sex accurately until they're older.
