Hoping "He's" Still a He~

Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by LittleYellowOne, Jun 29, 2008.

  1. Ever since I got my chick (first and only one, a Silkie), I've been default-ly referring to it as a "him", and I'm starting to wonder if I'm gonna make "him" gender-confused if he winds up being a "her"~

    Blackie was being good today (it was too hot for him to fuss much), so I wound up getting a few good pictures.

    So anybody got any educated guesses on gender here?~ Oh and age, since I honestly have no idea... Please forgive the newbie! Heehee.

    I have been reading on many other posts that Silkie roos will have little spur bumps and Silkie pullets will NOT..... looking at my chicks today, I'm thinking this may indeed be a good way to sex them. Does yours have spur bumps?

    With my limited experience with this breed it looks boyish to me
