Buttercup (girl?) and Poppy (boy?)
I have three white silkies that are about 9 weeks old. I have heard that they are slow to develop and hard to determine gender, but is behavior a good early predictor? Two of my silkies (Dandelion and Poppy) do a lot of chest bumping, which makes me think they are cockerels. The third silkie (Buttercup) never does this. She (?) just hangs out by herself most of the time. Do females grow combs? I am new to this...
