I have 4 silkies. They are all 8 weeks old. One is half the size of the other three. Of the other three - one has tail feathers that point up and s/he stands much taller. I know it is early but should I be wondering if perhaps that one is a he? The other two have tail feathers that are low, pointing back and down. They wander around with their heads lower and are less upright.

Quote:Much too young to tell. Once in a while you will get an extra small bird, a dwarf. It probably inherited extra bantam genes (there are 4 separate genes, most are recessive). If at 6 months one is still taller, you might strart thinking boy, but not yet.
