Discussion in 'What Breed Or Gender is This?' started by Justino, Apr 4, 2008.
how can u tell if a silkie is a girl or a boy? i there a way?
by their comb and if you know what to look for in their vent or if you wait to see if one crows
If you run your finger over their comb if you feel a small bump it's a boy if it feels flat it's a girl. I was told this by a silkie breeder. So far it has worked on all the ones I have so far. They need to be a month or so older to do this though. Plus the roos will start to get streamers on the top of their head.
well mine wont hold still so i guess i just will have to wait
Circular crest means girl and oval crest means boy
Quote:this may sound stupid but.....wats a crest?
Its the fro on the top of the head
Its not a stupid question. I asked that same question when I first got into silkies
Quote:so if its oval its a boy? wats the diffrence of oval and circular? got any pics?
I wish I had pics but all I had was boys. now I am down to 1 boy.
The difference is the circular fro means it will have a small comb. the boys have the oval shaped which means it will have a big comb.
hmmm good to know
