    I have two black silkies that are already all feathered out but I can't tell their genders? Can someone help please?? I'm guessing two hens but I don't know. Also how old do they look? I got them from a private breeder and don't exactly know age.

    I dont know a lot about silkies, maybe you could post these on the "silkie sexing" thread, its in the same section you posted this thread.

    Hope this helps!

    It's been two months since then, I'm pretty sure they are both hens now :)

    That's cool! I wonder if I could cross my frizzles with my silkies. I hope I remember to try when they are old enough.
