    Hi, I have a silkie (st.run, 7weeks old), a specked susex, and 2 EE's that I needed help checking the gender on. Besides for the silkie they were all bought as pullets. Also, how old do you think the ee and ss are?Thanks!

    The silkie is 7 weeks old and the other three were purchased from a lady who orders 100's of Ideal pullet chicks and then sells them when they're older. She thought they were around 6 weeks old but I thought closer to 4 weeks.

    Tamor is a cockerel, I can tell you that. He still has baby fuzz on his head but a huge comb. And I think Kell is a cockerel too.

    The Silkie is too early to tell.

    The Speckled Sussex looks like a pullet.

    Kell appears to have the triple pea comb. I don't see that on Tamor but that doesn't mean much... I do know, however, that my EE pullet was GIGANTIC and had a huge comb at 4 weeks and is most definitely a girl.

    I don't have much experience but do have one silkie although more breeder quality. Two EE pullets and I had a speckled Sussex roo . I definitely think your SS is a pullet... Mine had a huge red comb a five weeks. I think the first EE kell is a roo. The other a pullet. I'm gonna quess your silkie turns out to be a roo. Let us know in a few months;) Good Luck!
