    I have three 7-week-old white Silkie chicks that look almost identical. 2 stand up taller and are bigger than the other 1 though. Does that indicate 2 roos and 1 pullet?[​IMG]

    If you post pictures of them we may be able to help. At 7 weeks it will be pretty hard to sex a Silkie though. I don't think sexing by their stance would be very accurate but I am not sure.
