    I'm sure the bottom one is a girl, but as the other partridge is so different, I'm beginning to wonder .....

    I've read so much about trying to sex Silkies, my brain is hurting! Neither have wattles or the beginnings of combs. They are around 13 weeks old.

    Thank you for any help! [​IMG]

    Silkies can be tricky, some you have to wait for an egg or a crow. I think yours are pullets, but you will have to wait another month or so before being sure.
