    I have a silkie that is 10 weeks old not sure of the sex and if its to early to tell

    then a EE/Sliver laced Wyandotte mix is 17 weeks old, i look at it and i think its a girl, then i look and maybe it a slow growing Roo, sorry the pics didn't come out good the wind was really blowing and he/she wouldn't stay still

    Not sure about the silkie, but I'd say the second one is a pullet.

    In my opinion, they are both pullets. My Silkie girls look just like that one and in my Silkie roos, I could already tell by the comb and the feathers.

    I do not know silkies - so have no idea [​IMG]

    Your EE cross is a very interesting looking bird and does seem to be a bird of motion. I do not see any saddle feathers so I am going to guess pullet.

    I'd say they are both pullets. The silkie looks like my two silkie pullets. (different color though)

    Quote:glad to hear the EE mix is a pullet, she really use to look more SLW, not she getting alot of brown in her chest and wing feathers, the dad was a white and black Ameraucana

    Would love to see pics as she grows into her adult feathers.

    I have mix chicks that I would love to have look like her – my mix a bit different – Splash Orp Roo and Silver Laced Cochin hen cross.
