    My Pet Chicken says they're the only people who offer sexed day old silkies. I don't know anything about sexing chickens, so bear with me. [​IMG] WHY are they able to sex a silkie when apparently no one else can? I'd like to order some girls but I don't know if I can trust them or not.

    I really appreciate any help I can get!

    It really sends me over the edge that they (MPC) market themselves in such a manner, to uninformed buyers. Professional Silkie breeders CANT sex Silkies until they are nearing 6 months of age, and they usually specialize in the breed.

    That's what I thought. That's a shame they're trying to scam people.

    Quote:Every means of sexing has been tried by professional breeders before them. If it were possible, we'd all know how to do it.
