Hello! These are my two newest silkies named Toffi and Fee :p I got them this weekend, they are 3 months old. I know they are too young to be sexed for sure, I have lots of silkies too know that. Although I had a lot of 5 back in summer and guessed their genders from day 1! 4 guesses of 5 are right :D.
Anyway I'm guessing Toffi is a boy and Fee a girl, although I was hoping for 2 girls lol. What do you think?

I think you are right. From what I have been told of my silkie of similar age being a boy, your “boy” and my boy have similar combs. Your “girl” has a much more delicate subtle comb. Either way they are adorable

Cute photo! Handsome boy you have there :D
I think his comb is larger than my silkie's though ;)

I don’t see much comb and/or wattle growth for them being 3 months old. I’d say you have 2 pullets.
This is my 2 month old Silkie Bowie.

You can definitely see his comb and wattles. But I’m sure all Silkies are not the same.

Cutie :love Some definitely develop a lot earlier than others! I tried comparing my 2 newest silkies to my last chicks at the same age but didn't come to any conclusion for Toffi :confused: The older pullet looked very feminine at 3 months, like Fee does, but the cockeral was huge and growing streamers and wattles already!
