    Any guesses on gender of my cute little silkies? The brighter buff one is a tiny bit bigger (the first photos up to the pic of the two of them) and I feel like when I let them all run around he starts little stand offs a lot more than the other silkie (though they all do it and I’m sure I have some girls at least). Neither silkie have been super friendly with me, after they got over their sleepy phase (I got them as day olds) they would never like being picked up or sitting with me like the other chicks. But in terms of feathering and all that stuff I have no idea of their sexes!

    Guessing purely on feather growth I'm saying the one with more tail is female and the other is male.
