    Silkies are hard to sex. You would get better responses if you took photos without the chicken wire in the shot and used some full body from the side and head on angels.

    I have to agree, with silkies as hard as they are to sex, plus the quality of the pics, it's almost impossible to tell. From what I can see in the second to last pic, it looks like a pullet, but better pics would help.

    I know the chicken wire sucks....ill get some better pics tomorrow. I'll just open the doors on the run. The chicks love to run out when I open the door so somtimes taking pictures of them with the door open is hard..LOL
