    I am having trouble telling if my silkies are male or female. The one I though was a male (because of its much larger size than the other) is looking more like a girl. The crest is more of a puff. And the smaller one Looks more like a male because it sweeps back. Any thoughts???

    it is allmost inposable to tell on sillkie that young the first thing to look for is streemers ( shining longer feathers coming out of the crest facing back ) hope this helps
