    I have one blue silkie chick and one white silkie chick. They are both sweet and quiet which makes me think their hens but I have no clue. I know it might be to early to tell but I would just like to know what people think

    This is Bluebelle. Her crest is still growing.

    Thie is Cupcake. She is beautiful and has a large round crest and I think is about 1 or 2 weeks older than Bluebelle.

    I would say you've got females there. But then again silkies are so hard to tell males from females. I don't see what some call streamers coming off the tops of there heads though. How old are they?

    Yay! I thought they were girls to but you never know until they crow or lay, which they haven't done yet!
    thanks everyone.
