    I've got two silkies. This black one is smaller than my white one. They are ten weeks old. So, what do you think...Boy or Girl? ( or too early to tell?)

    Much too early. Silkies are extremely hard to sex before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they crow or lay eggs.

    I dont trust that rule, I could clearly tell on my boys and ladies when they were barely 2 months old, and my mixes on the day they hatched XD
