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.

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.
