    Looking for a silkie pullet in porcelain or blue.... (considering other colors as well).

    Won't need her until February (Valentine's Day gift to me from my boyfriend! LOL).

    Hoping for a fluffy girl with a good personality, as she'll be a pet only.

    Isn't it a little young to know it's sex?

    I can tell by the size of the comb, size of her vs. the other 2 that are roos, and the nosies she makes when I pick her up. She swacks in a high pitch and the roo chicks make a lower more manly swack sound. If your interested and pay for her, and closer to the time you want her I change my mind about the sex I would of course refund you. Im about 80% sure its a hen [​IMG]

    People that have raised silkies for awhile can tell by the sounds ,comb,body shape and be pretty accurate on it.

    Family Farm Store in Fayetteville, NC has adult silkies for sale and I got a nice black silkie at a hatchery in Apex, NC I found on craigslist. Here is the link to the listing: http://raleigh.craigslist.org/grd/2720539248.html . The silkies are about 3 months old now. This listing is old.
