    Hello, I am 5 weeks into my new hobby of raising chickens and I have one Silkie along with other breeds. Is there an easy way to determine the sex? He/she is approx 10 weeks of age.

    Silkies are hard to determine sex. Best I can tell you is wait until it crows or lays an egg.
    I call it doing the silkie wait. [​IMG]

    I'm still waiting. I think it's a game to silkies. [​IMG]
