    I have 2 silkies here they are both 6 weeks old and look exactly the same. They don't seem to have any comb development yet. The first 2 pics are number one and the next 3 pics are number 2 silkie. I am hoping for hens as I already have a roster. Please help [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    They are bit too young to be sure, for now I would guess pullet.
