    SF Silver can be visually sexed. Things get tricky when Silver is combined with other mutations. Charcoal (silver Tibetan) would be an example of a combination mutation that cannot be reliably visually sexed.

    I'd love to see your Silvers if you have any pics!

    Keep in mind Bleu, Cream, Lavender, Charcoal and Isabel are included in the "Silver Collection".

    Any help with visual sexing is appreciated. So far I'm only able to do it off actions such as crowing.

    Thanks
