    I have 8 Silkies and am anxious to know what they are. They are 9 week old. Any ideas?

    I'm no expert, but from experience, I've never really been able to tell at 9 weeks. But if you could post a picture of each bird's comb, that might help. [​IMG]

    Thanks, I will do that. I might wait a few weeks and post new pictures with comb close-ups.

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

    They are all looking like pullets to me, so far.
