    Hi [​IMG]
    We were hoping for a bit of help sexing our two 9 week old chicks - chamois polish and silkie cross.
    Neither have crowed yet and we know they're pretty tough to sex, but at the moment we think the polish may be a hen and the silkie cross a roo....they were our first chicks hatched under our broody so we're gonna keep them both anyway cos they're soooo cute [​IMG]
    would appreciate any advice from all you guys!
    Thanks

    at the moment they look like pullets but that can change (had it happen with a silver laced polish)
