    Alright, I know it takes a while, but any guesses on this one, I think pullet, at 11 weeks, no sign of comb yet...

    It really is way too soon to tell… sometimes you can tell when they are 4mo other times its closer to 6mo before you can tell… just watch it for any roo behavior like the way it walks, comb buds popping up early, streamers on the back of its head (all silkie chicks will have spikes while they are feathering though)… it is hard to tell with something that young. Right now I’d say girl, but most of them look like girls at 11wk.

    A picture of the whole bird would help, but based on the comb, I would say pullet.

    Hmmm silkies drive me nuts [​IMG]. I wanna say girl right now with the comb looking the way it does. When their young I find it easier to tell with their actions more than their looks.
