    well i have a problem. i am heading over to my local pet store to pick up some white silkie chicks. but the problem is im only allowed to get girls. and the guy tells me there straight run.
    and im also only trying to get 1 or 2.... is there any tricks you guys have on sexing these guys... cause i dont want to get too attached to these silkies and have to give them away when i find out there guys..

    Unfortunately, you are pretty much out of luck. Silkies are one of the hardest to sex... you don't know for sure till they lay an egg or crow.

    Good luck.
