    And this is my only vaulted silkie chick that i hatched. i think shes beautiful and im gonna say female to her because of the lack of a comb.... what do you think of the red around her mouth? normal? [​IMG] shes 3 months old [​IMG] shes from a lavender egg and is getting green shine in her tail feathers and purple in her wings. [​IMG]

    They are SOOO cute! [​IMG] Don't you love silkies!By the way if you get a rooster I would wait to see what hes like if it's crowing thats a problem they tend to have a fairly quiet crow.

    I think the silkies are still a little too young to tell gender yet. Try waiting about 2 or 3 more weeks then posting new pictures. Also whole body pictures would help.
