Silkie mix pullet?

    Hi guys! I have one more chick that I need your expertise on. I have a Silkie mix. She's probably five weeks old. I can see the beginning of waddles, but just barely and I believe they're flesh colored. She doesn't have any comb that I can see. I have zero experience with Silkies and their characteristics. Here's a picture of her. Do you agree that she's a pullet?

    I don't know why but I keep trying to post a picture but it won't let me.

    I don't think anyone can help you because silkies are one of the hardest breeds to sex, even when they are much older.

    Can you put it in preview then post from there? 5 weeks is really young to guess on silkies or even a mix.Silkies are hard

    The picture isn't working :) It's still pretty young though. For pure Silkies you can usually tell when they're around 12 weeks old.

    Yea, that's what I was saying in my post. I have no idea why it wouldn't post the picture. I tried to post it five times. But it just wouldn't work.

    Are you trying to post from your mobile device or computer? For some reason it won't let me post pictures in mobile mode on my iPhone, but if I switch it to desktop mode it works. [​IMG]

    Mine too. It'll say the image is embedding, and then it just doesn't. I can post pics from my phone if i switch from mobile to desktop, but its such a pain, so I do it on the computer.
