    I could really use some help guessing the sex of my Silkies. Thanks in advance for any guesses.

    Lunar- about 3 months old. Almost positive this is a boy.

    This is the first of my 10 wk old Black Silkies (neither of them have the 3 row comb that the gray has, its just flat on top of their beaks)

    I am hoping you are right!

    With only a month or so between them in ages, I would think the black ones combs would be looking similar to the gray one if they were boys too. Or am I wrong?

    I am pretty sure I caught my Gray chasing my buff Brahma bantam around already, so that adds to the boy theory.

    Bueatiful silkies and I think the first is a roo and the other 2 plullets. They look like they would make excellent looking babies and of course cute to boot.

    Thanks for your input!

    I hope one of them is a girl so I get some babies! What color babies would I get?
