    Sorry, but it is way too young to tell... Silkies are notoriously hard to sex... maybe try posting a pic again in a few more weeks... btw, the girls tend to get rounder, more even length poofs on their heads, while boys tend to have streamers from theirs.... but that won't show til after they get their feathers in... good luck! :)

    Way to young to tell. It might take even more than a couple more weeks to determine a gender, it might be a matter of months actually.

    Too young to sex. I'll be happy to guess when he/she is older.

    The silkie looks like a girl. The frizzle might also be a girl but I'm on my phone so it's hard to tell exactly. :)

    Thanks. They are
