    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to join our flock. I would suggest posting your birds' pics on our What Breed or Gender is This? section in the Forum at the top of the page and let our experts there take a look at them for you. If you haven't done so already, definitely check out our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Cheers.

    Silkies are extremely difficult to sex early - generally 4-5 mos. is best or wait till they crow or lay. You may want to join the "Canadians, check-in-here." thread to find out what's going on in your area. Welcome to BYC.
