    I bought 3 silkie chicks when they were *about* 1mo old (think they may've been older). Two months later 2 are definately boys. This is my last hope for a girl (can't keep roos) but I'm afraid it's a boy too.
    Any silkie experts want to weigh in?

    I think she's a girl, but I'm no expert on sexing silkies.

    Thanks for the input! I will keep my hopes up for her then. I have to get rid of the other two, which is sad b/c they are so handsome and sweet! Here are pics of them. The blue one showed signs of being a boy early on with long streamers and slicked-back hairstyle, but the silver one I wasn't sure until he started crowing a couple days ago!
