    Ok, I know they are notoriously difficult to sex and you often have to wait for them to either lay or crow... But here is my nearly 7wk old silkie.

    I'd be interested in hearing what colour and what you think, pullet or roo!!

    Looks like a pullet to me, but 7 weeks is still REALLY early for Silkies.

    I would vote pullet but it is early....

    Yeah I realise it is so difficult. Either way I will keep it, but it would be nice to have a pullet as I only have Black Rock pullets at the moment and would like to mix them together!

    I hope so!! It gets jealous when I pick my cats up and runs backwards and forwards in its pen. As soon as I pick it up it goes quiet!!

    Partridge is good!! [​IMG]
