I have two silkies about 11 weeks old any idea if they are male or female
They are some beautiful silkies you got there! It would help a lot if you could get close-ups of the comb and waddles.
Thank you! They are beautiful!
The tan one looks like it might have some saddle feathers which is a sign of it being a rooster. Here is a picture of saddle feathers on male and females.
Thank you for your help!!! I will try to get closer and better pics.
Thank you so very much!!
Sounds good! Glad to help!
Silkies can be difficult to sex. Some can be obvious early on but I think more times than not that is not often the case. I was able to know that my silkie was a male from early on. He started crowing at 7 1/2 weeks. I don't think that is common tho lol. The buff doesn't seem to have much of a comb. The white one definitely has a decent little comb going on. I don't see much in the way of wattles from the pics you took. If I had to take a guess, personally, I think you have a pair but I am by no means an expert on the breed and could be wrong. I'd keep an eye on the white one as it develops more tho. Is just my opinion. Such cutie pies!
Awesome thank you
Not sure if this is a better pic
