    This is one of our silkies, Olaf. I've been researching and still cannot figure out the gender of either of our silkies. Is Olaf a roo or a hen? If I can get a picture of our other one I'll post it later.[​IMG]

    Age is very important in sexing silkies - how old??

    They're 17 weeks old. I'll try and get a picture of their faces and a picture of the other silkie as well.
