    *update* It looks like Loddie Da won!!! All of them are girls. I plan on getting some pictures tomorrow so people can try to sex their own silkies by comparison.

    Hi all of you silkie sexitists
    I was wondering if you guys wanted to play a little game. I have 4 silkies, different colors but all of them are 6 weeks old. I know it is far too early to accurately sex them at this age but I thought it might be fun to just guess and see what they turn out to be in a couple more months. The person that guesses them all correctly gets the pretend " Number 1 sexer" trophy. Here are the pics:

    This is Marlyn Monroe, she is the loudest and the biggest. She is shy around people but loves being around her sisters.

    This is Buttercup. She is a little follower. She loves hanging around Marlyn her best buddy.

    This is Ebony my favorite. She is the smallest but the friendliest. She is very dainty when she eats and loves to be the first one for treats.

    Here is Ginger the most daring of all of them. She loves being with her sister Ebony. She is curious and daring just like Ebony. Oh and she loves to steal treats from her sisters.

    Here are some group pictures:

    This is a 3 month update and i was wondering if anyone could guess their sex for reals this time. Im pretty sure Marlyn and buttercup are girls but im clueless as to what ebony and ginger are. Here are some pics (if the pics are not good enough then i can get more tomorrow):

    I think that they all are females, but maybe one of the black maybe a boy, but I still am thinking female.
