    Can you tell what their gender is at 6 weeks? Is there a trick like their legs, sizes? None of them have combs/waggles. So I will upload some pictures, and see if their names need to be changed! [​IMG] I think Cotton is a male I may be wrong but, I can post more as they grow. So any answers? And My camera is terrible [​IMG]

    It looks a little early to tell. Maybe take some new pics?

    Quote:Hmmm Thanks for the answer! ^^ I will post one of them all together, just for more help. They might be too little still, I want them to grow so they can get out of their awkward teen years~

    I think lil Ivy looks like she may have a bump like my recenlty confirmed red roo, and my lil guy is approx 6 weeks old too. My whites & blacks look just like yours though...I see nothing on them.

    *Bumps* Anyone? I have a question too, this is gonna sound crazy but. Does the amout of feathers on silkies feet determine their gender? [​IMG]
