    I'm not familiar with the sexing of showgirls...however, I don't see anything that would lead me to believe it is a boy.

    On a sidenote, good luck with the name! I had a Lola....who turned out to be a boy. Lilo.......so I named another chicken Lola. Then it got taken by a hawk.

    I am not meant to have a Lola apparently.

    Good luck with YOUR Lola [​IMG]

    It is a white silkie "showgirl".. She is funny looking, but "different". She follows my roo everywhere, no crowing and she is about 4 months old. There are no waddles from what I can see.
    For those that breed/raise these, is this what she is "supposed" to look like? Could she be SQ? She has fully feathered feet, nice toe spacing, dark small comb, tight wings etc..

    This brings to mind a question I have not asked yet...how in the heck DO you sex a silkie? Some are so fluffy you can't even tell it's a bird!

    Quote:Sometimes I had to wait til it crowed or laid an egg. Its easier to tell on a non-bearded bird. I used to try by size, but I had some very large hens (depends on the breeder). Lola seems more petite, but it may just be the breed.
