    Hi everyone I just received two silkie chick's for free and I was told that they're a month old. I've never had silkies before and I know very little about them. I just wanted to get someone's opinion on these guys, or girls. I know its hard to get the gender of a silkie,but maybe someone can take a guess at their gender or age?

    I would say that it's still too young at this age. A picture of his/her comb might help.

    Yeah I heard that you'll never really know until they either crow or lay an egg! I'll try my best to get a picture of the comb they don't like to stay still for very long.

    And is this picture the same silkie as in the first two pictures in your first post?

    The first two pictures are the same silkie,and the last one you sent me is the other one. They look very similar but one is just a little bit lighter then the other.
