..Another of my 7 chicks... Yes I know too early to make a great guess on gender, but looking at comb it's more developed then some of the others.. My phone camera is not great taking pics of little active fluffballs, maybe try to zoom in.. What do you think? ..It will be interesting in a few months to see what it ends up being!
Does anyone else have 6week old Silkie pics they can post for comparison?

This is Uo at 6 weeks, I was convinced until a few days prior she was a boy. DNA results came in at 5.5 weeks. Girl.

Update pic... no streamers but comb still big, larger in size overall compared to others same age. Outgoing but friendly personality. Still thinking cockerel. Hopefully he can get along with my other boys so I can keep him, I love his unique colour.

Hopefully my other 4 same age are pullets!.. I'll have to post these ones in another sexing thread, when older ..

He does have a vey unique color, not sure what I'd even call it :O ... it almost looks like he's got a wing bar (which I think is a male only marking, and thats probably not the technical name but thats how I'd describe it- https://www.backyardchickens.com/hredirect2.php?c=5291641 like that stripe of color across the wing butt (also, not my photo, just grabbed from google!)) although it could just be my eyes and the fact that its 2:30am haha, I hope the rest are ladies nonetheless!!
