Hi just wondering if anyone can help me see if this is a female or male silkie
Glad you could join us here! What a lovely silkie you have there!! Silkies are notoriously hard to sex. How old is your silkie? Please do pop by the what breed gender section where I'm sure members will be able to help you. Here is the link ~ https://www.backyardchickens.com/f/15/what-breed-or-gender-is-this
Good luck and enjoy BYC
Hi and welcome to BYC - you have some great advice already from Y/Coop, so I'll just say hello!
All the best
Hey, beautiful ..girl..looks to like to me. I've hatched many silkies love them. This is a good age to ask, it usually takes a while to be able to start seeing certain signs.
The head feathers are not sweeping back, or are they looking long.
The comb looks small enough.
And, the tail doesn't have any long streams going down.
You can go to a silkie thread and ask too..I will put a thought out there though..pullet! I have a batch of white silkie eggs in right now. Love the whites.
Whether you post here OR on the "what breed or gender is this," thread please include a front view of head with crest feathers pulled or held back, so the comb in is full sight.
I think it may be a pullet but, would want to check out the comb first.
Agree with cynthia12 & drumstick diva, pullet as the head feathering are round & not sweeping back. When guessing gender the comb & wattles are important to see. Hard feathered birds pics of the hackles & streamers help, Silkies it's the head feathers. Pretty bird.
