I just acquired this silkie from a friend after having to re-home 2 of my beloved 5 month old roos. You guys were on point figuring out their gender at 9 weeks old, was going to see if y’all could do your best guess with my little babe, Cheech (possibly 10 weeks old), otherwise I’ll send out for a DNA test to save getting too attached again. I’ll also update the post as I find out the actual gender, thank you!

Ps. She/he has a little cross-beak too

I think it's a pullet. How old?

Oh my gosh…I have the twin!
On a side note …I wonder if females are easier to tell because only one person has ventured a guess on my 11 week old! I am pretty sure I have a girl and a boy but I am scared to have to give up the boy. I also tried a DNA test but they didn’t find any DNA on the feathers. I would love to hear what gender yours turns out. I think yours is female.

I’ll keep you posted, but she seems to be a girl so far!
