Hi, we just recently got a baby silkie for our broody silkie and we were wondering the gender of the baby!
It may be too early to tell but let me know what you guys think his/her gender is.

Silkies can be difficult. Sometimes you can tell by behavior if they have hatch mates. The cockerels will chest bump and love to play domination games. Pullets will do this also but not to the same extent. Although some cockerels are more docile and don't behave like the others. Sometimes you can tell by 12 weeks by comb development. Sometimes you don't know until they crow or lay an egg.
