Hi! I have four 3 week old chicks that consists of a Pekin, Opington, Black Polish and a Silkie (at least I think that's what they are but I could be wrong!) and I was wondering how early on I can start sexing them? Any help would be most welcome!

Hi :welcome

Glad you could join us here! At three weeks it may be a little early to sex them yet, especially the polish and silkie. Those two breeds sure can be hard to sex. I'm sure though if you post some pics in the what breed gender section members will be able to help you.

Wishing you the very best of luck with your chicks in the future and enjoy BYC :frow

I do know, that silkies take a while to sex. I love them, and can take up to 4 months to be able to tell. Here a photo of a few of my latest hatch.
