I was wondering if anyone would like to play the guessing game with me? I have 3 silkies and I'm not sure who is a he and who is a she
I think I have an idea but I need more opinions..I'm calling one Grandma already (so i'm praying everyone thinks it's a she as well) they are 10 weeks old. The first one has a spikey comb(sorry about my terminology) but a good little waddle and is very fiesty with my RIR's The second one has no comb but a waddle and my third has a little comb and no waddle...that's the one I call Grandma
if you need better pics let me know

Roo, roo, hen. Comb and wattles at 10 weeks means boy. Grandma can probably keep her name, but 10 weeks is too early to rule out a roo. Good luck, I know I need it when it comes to growing a silkie hen. Seems like unsexed is code for rooster.

Thank you! those were my thoughts too, I'm happy that I get to keep the name Grandma..I may keep the second guy and get rid of the first one, he's kinda mean to my 1 year old RIR's (apparently he didn't get the memo that he they are twice the size of him) I hope I can get some free babies!!
