I have see some forums where you can sex a chick at 2 to 4 days after they hatch by there wings. I wondering if this will work for Silkies as well? If not does anyone have a clue on how to sex a baby silkie??

I see, Thank you. When I was younger we use to gently pick the baby chicks up behind the neck and if the feet when straight down it was a boy and if they put there feet up to there body, it was a girl. But of course, they weren't Silkie chickens, they were rhoades Island reds. Don't think this works for silkies though..
