On friday our local feed store is ordering in some silkies and i was just wondering if there is a way to tell if its female because i all ready got the rooster part covered. The only reason i want silkies for is their tendency to go broody and i cant see my silkie roo's doing that. I have heard that you can sometimes tell by the feathers on a day old chick but i find that too confusing. Is there maybe an easier way or am i going to have to hope i pick right?
