    These little ones hatched just over 3 weeks ago. The dad was a frizzle and mum was a silkie.
    I know silkies are difficult to sex, but is that only pure silkies? I’m new to chickens! Any guesses as to the sex? Help!

    They need a couple more weeks. 3 weeks is too young to sex most breeds. Post more pictures when they’re 6 weeks+.

    That first chick has a pretty large comb, so I think cockerel. Number three, maybe pullet? More pictures in two or three weeks...
