Can you tell the sex of a chick by their head?

    Ok, my silkie babies are a week old now and I've noticed that some of them clearly have a pronounced "crest" if you will. Is this any indication of their sex? I would think it must mean something because there is such a difference. I will try to get some good close ups of them but the little buggers move too fast [​IMG]
