    Does anyone know if there is a way to sex silkies at 7 weeks old? I got some, straight run, and am trying to figure out what they are. I can't post pictures at the moment, but once I can I will.

    Seven weeks is way too young to sex them, unless there is an obvious comb. It can take 6 months or more before you know for sure with a Silkie. Post pics when you can and we will take our best guesses.
