    My silkie(pippin) is about 3-4 weeks old. Pippin is Grey and his feathers are VERY scriggly and curly and messy at the back. I will shortly post a picture. What Gender?? Any help is awesome!! Pic: [​IMG]

    I can't tell by the picture. Because Silkies are so hard to sex, I would recommend waiting at least another month and then repost pics (making sure to include full body pictures especially the comb).

    agree much too young, and you have the head cut off. What are we supposed to look at? 4-5 mos. of age is much better
