    Hello all. My family and I are new here but have been reading lots of useful info you all have posted! I have found myself at that in-between where I now need to know if our silkies are roo's or hens, due to living in a close neighborhood I cant risk upsetting anyone. Any help you could offer would be most appreciated! ! Sorry for this being pic heavy!

    [​IMG] how old are they. Breeders usually can't sex them till 4-5 mos. old. You could post on the "Silkie thread," put that in the search box to find it. They could offer feedback as well as answer breed specific questions.
