    They are just barely over a month, so I realize this is super duper early, but I will continue to update as the months go on & it will be fun to see who has a keen eye for sexing, & who is just plain wrong! [​IMG]

    My guesses, after knowing them for a little bit are:

    1.) boy
    2.) boy
    3.) boy
    4.) girl
    5.) girl

    HOPEFULLY I don't have that many boys... & these are my first silkies & I'm also a new chicken owner... so I really am not basing this off of any experience or anything. Just fun to guess & see. Join on in!

    I'm going to guess
    1-Boy
    2-girl
    3-girl
    4girl
    5-boy
     
  4. I've been trying to sex mine judging by their behaviors but unfortunately everyone I have talked to says the only way to sex them is to wait and see who crows and lays.

    Could we get better views of the comb area? That would help on a couple of them [​IMG] Silkie babies are just so darn cute [​IMG]
