    Hi everyone!

    This is my silkie Fiona. He/she is a bantam silkie, about 8-9 weeks old. I know silkies are super hard to sex, but I was just wondering if anyone had an idea? I think/hope it's a girl, but I don't know! Anyone want to guess? Thanks in advance :)

    Still looking pullet. Yes, they take really long to mature. Some books say that it may take silkies roos up to six months before you know for sure and up to 10 months before the pullets begin to lay. My silkie looks like yours and is about the same age and I am hoping for a pullet, too.
