    Hi! Can anyone help me determine if my 7 week old silkies are male or female? Thanks![​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I'll be in the barn!
    They are still a little young, but do you have pics of their combs/faces?

    Right now they look very girly. But, that could change, they're still young!

    Seems like they have an awful lot of comb and wattle development at 7 weeks old. I'm guessing cockerel for both.

    They're non bearded, they have bigger combs and wattles...


    They could be cockerels, but I'd reserve judgement for now.
