I know this may sound like a stupid question but I'm new to the breed. I was wondering if sexing Frizzled Silkies is the same as sexing the smooth ones. I have 2 couple week old silkie babies and one is a frizzle. I know it'll be a few weeks before I can determine but didn't know if being a frizzle makes it harder to sex or not.

Sexing Frizzled Silkies is the same as sexing Silkies. Unfortunately, you won't be able to tell the gender in a couple weeks--more like months. Silkies are slow to mature so it is very hard to tell the gender at an early age.
