Mine are like 4 wks old and have begun sparring so I think they are roosters. Any tips? thx!
pictures? Its REALLY hard to tell with silkies. You usually don't know till one starts crowing or lays an egg...
Also both pullets and cockerels spar, so it can't really be used as an indicator.
Do a search on sexing silkie chicks and you will see what a hot topic it is. From my experience, the better quality silkies are harder to sex . . . it takes a bit longer. i can sometimes tell at nine weeks, but not always. gvntofly05 is right, all chicks spar, so that isn't a good indicator. Just enjoy them and wait until things become obvious.
