    Hello,

    I know you get asked this a lot, and I know it’s difficult to tell with silkies but I thought I’d give it a go! Can you help me sex my two silkies please?

    We bought eggs for our broody pekins to hatch and we have 2 silkies. For a while one seemed slightly larger than the other, but now they seem about the same.

    They are exactly 12 weeks old today :)
