They are from a breeder who just started hatching silkies. She told me the only way to know is if it crows or lays an egg but thought I’d ask everyone on this forum.
Yes, I only see a comb on the darkest one. Wasn’t sure if anyone can tell if it’s a cockerel or pullet based on the shape of the comb? I’m new to raising chickens and have of course picked a really hard breed to start with…haha.The only one with any comb development is the darkest one, right? They're beautiful! Silkies are so tricky! To me they look like pullets, but I haven't owned a breeder quality cockerel before, so I wouldn't take my word on it.
That’s wonderful! I guess I’ll just have to wait and seeMy breeder quality Silkie was just over 7 months old before she started to lay. I posted about her before she started because I was beginning to wonder. Everyone said pullet and sure enough she laid her first egg about a week later
