    Hi,
    Interested to know the sex of my Silkie and also the colour it will be when its older (does it look like it'll be black or a splash or grey?)?

    Ive been told it is a girl but would love to know what others think. It is approx. 2months old.

    Black Silkie, too young to be sure of gender, but thinking pullet.

    That is a black silkie, and most likely a hen :) even they have combs.

    Was told she was a pure, but interestingly enough it seems like she might not be. What does she look like to you?
