    How young can either silkies or frizzles be sexed? Someone local is selling some chicks but I only can have pullets. Any suggestions? Or will I just have to wait until someone crows.

    With silkies sometimes you can tell, or at least make an educated guess, but I have been fooled before and thus now I am very humble with silkies---I wait until they lay or crow (unless I def. see streamers) to say for sure.
    I do enjoy guessing on BYC though when people post pics.
