    Any idea on boy or girls? There was another one, 1/3 their size, and it passed away. [​IMG]

    They are too young to sex.

    I agree; young Silkies are notoriously difficult to sex even for experienced chicken owners. I would suggest re-posting their pics in about 2 months. By then their gender should be much more obvious.
