Can you tell the gender of these chicks?

    Hey everyone! I just hatched these two silkie chicks last week and I have already noticed some behavioral differences between the two of them. One stands tall like a roo usually does while the other stands more flat backed. I know silkies are super hard to sex but just curious is anyone else has noticed them acting differently. Here are some pics.

    Your chicks are far too young to sex at this point and their behavior really doesn't mean much at that age.
