    I think this is one of the worst breeds to try to sex. No idea at this age...sorry.

    I think I read in the Silkie hatch a long thread a couple of methods for comparing beaks on the silkie babies and getting a better guess. I can't remember what beak style ment what. Silkies are pretty much impossible to sex until they either lay or crow sorry.
