    I have 2 new Silkies, they are almost a week old. How can you tell the sex of these? One is bigger than the other but I'm not sure that means anything? Just wondering... they sure are cute!

    Wayyyy to early to tell the gender of them.

    You can sex them by: It's a roo if it crows and a hen if it lays an egg. That's about it.
