    [​IMG]. I have read a bunch of the posts on here about sexing silikes. And I think I have 3 males and one female. Ugh. I will keep one male (the one that has the feathered feet). They are about 4-5 weeks now.

    How old are they?
    Can you please get individual photos of each chick with its comb clearly shown. :)

    I will do a photo shoot when my toddler takes a nap. I edited it to add age. 4-5 weeks now.

    They are hard to take photos of, the bop their heads around so much. Any tricks to getting them to look at camera head on?

    if you can get side profile shots I can help you out. when sexing silkies you don't want head on photos because it will make it too difficult and mask the streamers of a male. so please get profile shots of each one. Thanks :) they sure are cute!♡♡♡

    [​IMG] [​IMG] 4/4 I like him the best because he has the feather legs. But jury still out on what sex they all are.
