    Here is a picture of my 6mth baby silkie. I think it is a girl. What do you all think.

    Don't mind the chicken head poking out from under it. The silkie has taken to sitting on our new sizzle and this is the only picture of the silkie that i have right now.

    How pretty she is! I think she's a she anyway, especially if she's sitting on your sizzle.

    I really think you'd have heard crowing by now if it were a male. My male is about 5 months old now and he's not only crowing but he'll get after us if we run past him! What a hoot he is!

    My female is much stockier than my male, and looks a lot like yours, except red.

    I have 10 one month old silkie babies right now, and it's very hard to tell at this age, but I think I only have 3 or 4 females. I'll have to find good homes for the boys. [​IMG] They're so cute!
