This is one of my silkie chicks. How do you tell if it is a roo or hen?
Ive heard that you can tell by which way the saddle feathers point. Hope it helped.
Most people will tell you that you won't really know until it crows or lays an egg.
Yes, I've had many silkies and they are very hard to tell. I believe you have a pullet there.
Possibly male. Need better pictures.
looks like a boy to me.
looks like a pullet to me, but id need to know the age and have some closer pictures to know for sure
I don't know the comb looks girly and the head dress looks Roo-ish. I heard and believe you really cant go by the comb?? how old is she? Heres a picture of mine I think that these are boys and your chick doesn't have near as much combs as my "supposed" boys do, although I have adult silkies Roos and Hens and there combs vary widely. Does she have Wattles ?????? I can't tell yours is fluffier than mine. Their 10 1/2 weeks old.
and a girl "supposedly"?
Just had a thought (rare for me) LOL, is she molting? mine are getting in alot of new feathers that may be why she looks like she has streamers on her head dress. If she is Im voting pullet!
