    Ok...so I have read on here from some that you can feather sex a silkie and some say you can't feather sex a silkie. For those that can any ideas on these. They are about 2 days old. Thanks. Sorry about the picture quality I took them with my phone.

    FireTigeris Tyger! Tyger! burning bright

    When I had feather sexing birds, alternating long and short were one sex and all long or all the same length were the other sex.

    Not sure if you can feather sex all or even some lines of silkie or not
