    I've posted on here about my 2 Silkies before... i was told by the man I bought them off that they were definitely 2 girls but recently some people have said Sadie - the bigger one - looks like a Roo. As I've never had chickens before I'm not sure what to look for so I'm just wondering if anyone on here has any advice? Sadie is the one on the left in the picture of both girls and that's her also in the individual pic.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated ☺️

    How old are they? I see nothing rooish, but side standing shots would help. I think you just may need to wait a bit longer.

    They're around 6 months old... I did ask the man if they were definitely girls and he said they were so I never really doubted it but recently people have made comment and it's made me think I'll try to get some side standing shots - if they can keep still for long enough lol

    If they are 6 months old than they are pullets.

    I've never had chickens before so I'm literally hopeless I wouldn't mind if she was a boy - though she would need a different name Thanks ☺️ They're funny little birdies... I could watch them run around their coop all day lol

    Here are a few of our Black Sumatras.
    I really can't tell with these chickens. Male or female?
    (Same bird in both pics)
