    I have 3 silkies and am trying to figure out if they are male or female. I have my guesses, but I won't bias anyone ahead of time. They are all 10 weeks old. The buffs are from one breeder, the blue from another.

    ALL pictures are clickable thumbnails

    I am not sure about #1 from the pictures. #2 is a pullet and #3 is a roo.

    That's what I was thinking too. I feel pretty sure #1 is a roo, #2 is a pullet, but I wasn't sure about #3.

    number 1 looks like a girl in the second and third pic but a boy in the first one so that one is hard. I am pretty sure number 2 is a female and 3 is a boy.

    Yep, boy, girl, boy. Of course, they can be tricky sometimes!
