Got some newly hatched Silkies last night. SO adorable, my first ones of this breed.
They are all 1 day old or less. At what age can you tell if they will be bearded or not? Also, how early can you tell their sex? Any tell tale signs they may be one or the other?

Thanks!

Quote:ina way they look bearded but not to sure. maybe have to wait just a bit before you can tell. and as for sexing them silkies are one of the hardest breeds of chickens to sex. most have to wait till a crow or egg.

Yes way to early to tell anything! Check back in about 4 months or more. Lol!
