  1. I have these seven silkie chicks...6 weeks old...
    I labled the pics with numbers if that helps later with guessing...yes two appear headless...but they were the best pics I could get. they move around so much.








    I am thinking #7 is a boy?? the rest i haven't a guess...anyone else?

    At 6 weeks its very very hard to sex silkies. Silkie #7 look like it is developing wattles already, so I would guess boy.

    They are very cute chicks!! [​IMG]

    At 6 weeks its really hard to tell with good or bad pictures. I normally can tell by 12-13 weeks old. Even then somtimes I am in between. give them another 4 weeks and then post some more pictures.

    You will probably have an idea of the sex within the next month or so, but at 6 weeks it can be hard...without a clear head shot and decent view of the comb, the sex cannot be determined at that age.
