Hi, I have a 4 week old white Silkie. I know it's still early but what do you think? Hen or Roo?
I tossed a coin and it landed tails , so its a pullet.
Have you possibly turned chick upside down to check???
Don't get mad at my HUMOR,,,, By the way.. ONE BEAUTIFUL CHICK 20 years ago I had a few silkies. Got them as adult chickens rather than baby chicks. Super Docile.
WISHING YOU BEST..
Thanks, your right it would be about as accurate as tossing a coin! I wish I had more to compare it to but it's the only Silkie. I'm hoping this one is sweet.
silkies are very difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age, and some not till they crow or lay. If it HAS to be pullet, the best thing is to buy point-of-lay or a laying hen. Cuts out all the anxiety and worry about rehoming a cockerel.
BTW front views are important showing the comb
I'm hoping it's a hen but if not no worries.
I am no expert at all but I would guess it's a rooster
