Whoever wants there silkies sexed I can sex them 4 weeks and up.
What's your trick?
I can tell because the males have very little fuzz on their head while females fuzz hangs more in there face. The comb helps a little too.
At 4 weeks? Ours do that too but a little bit later xD
They start to get their fuzz at 4 weeks.
Here's our 6 wk old silkie.
We took a bunch of pics.
Anyone care to guess the gender?
Ok I guess this one doesn't help with gender, but I thought it was an interesting effect.
a little soon, but looks like a pullet so far
Thanks. That's what I'm thinking. We had 2 other hatch-mates who had very wide combs. Thankfully our daughter got attached to this one, who has the higher chance of being a pullet.
I'd check back in a few weeks so we can take a look again, but I think there's a good chance you have a pullet there
I think pullet.
