    it's very easy to tell a girl silkie form a boy silkie... the boys crow and the girls lay eggs! :D that's about it really...

    Beautiful birds!

    And yeah......sexing Silkies is almost impossible. I have a couple friends who breed/own Silkies (been doing it for 10 years) and even they can't guarantee which chicks will be male or female. And I have known plenty people who thought without a doubt that they had a pullet........and then it started to crow. Lol they really are tricky little buggers.
