    I know silkies are hard to sex at such a young age....but does anyone want to take a guess? Those pictures are at 5 weeks. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
     
  2. In the 2nd picture the white silkie looks like a cockerel (His posture says it all). But I'm not sure on the gray one, post more pictures of the gray pls...

    The white one looks boyish to me too. I can't tell with the other one, but if you were to judge by size it looks like a pullet

    Thank you.The gray one is about 10 days younger than the white old...that's why he /she is smaller.

    It's simply too early to lean one way or the other. I have a 7 month old partridge showgirl and I'm still not sure on the gender....no crowing and no mating....go figure.
