    Here's my Silkie (well, not true Silkie as she was from TSC).... anyway, still a crap shoot on whether it's truly a girl or boy... Praying she is really a girl so I can keep her! She is just about 6 weeks old. Not as friendly as I hoped, my pullet is way more friendlier and doesn't mind being held. Since I'm a newbie to all this, I'd love any thoughts![​IMG]

    Can you get a photo of the head please?
    Silkies are very hard to sex even at the best of times, and six weeks might be a bit to early to tell its sex.

    too early but, the comb does look wide for a pullet.
