    I have 2 silkie x that are 10 weeks old. Because they are silkie crosses, I am posting pics of their parents, since I think it may help in sexing the chicks.

    The first is a d'uccle x black silkie. This is my 2nd chick by these parents, the first turned out to be a roo and I had to re-home him. I am really hoping this one is a girl.

    This "it's" brother from last year, about 11 weeks. [​IMG]

    This is "it's" parents when they were between 3-4 months old. [​IMG]

    The other one is a cohcin/silkie x blue silkie. I know this one is going to take longer to sex, but I thought I would give it a shot.

    Oh, I really hope so. I had to get rid of both their dads, and the brother (who ended up getting killed along with all the other chickens), and I have no more roosters. This is their "legacy", so to speak. They are very sentimental chicks [​IMG]
