    Does anyone know at what age you can tell sex of these types of chicks. A friend has some chicks and I want to get one but can't have a rooster. Will also post in the "what breed/gender forum".

    Thanks

    You can hope you can start to tell the Silkies sex around 4 weeks. You'll notice as you look thru that Silkie sexing thread that most of the young chicks posted are purely guesses.
    If the frizzles are Cochins, they should be easier to tell. I'm just getting started with bantam Cochins, but when I raised standards I was pretty confident index about 4-5 weeks. There's always that one that fools you though. Good luck!
