are these two roos and hens? I think they are 13 weeks
Need a better lit pic of the black Silkie, the white one looks roo.
Well they arent mine I am thinking about buying them... and th elady said you cant tell what silkies are by the comb you have to wait till they either lay an egg or crow
I really wouldn't consider her an informed source, then. She's either nonsense you or she cannot tell the difference at 3 months. While Silkies are somewhat notorious for being difficult to sex, you can generally bet on the wattles and comb growing faster in males than females.
Btw, crowing isn't 100%, some hens do so. Egg laying is the only guarantee and these birds are way too young for that.
Here's a great site that explains how to sex Silkies: http://www.browneggblueegg.com/Article/SilkieGender.html
