    I have a 21 week old Silkie/Frizzle bought as a chick from a friend of a friend.
    (She is black one) She has not starting crowing but developed a little bit of a comb and wattle just in the past week.

    I have little experience with the breed but I know they are late bloomers.
    Any idea on the sex?

    Also I have two 11 week old silkies bought from a local feed store straight run.

    One (buff) developed a comb and wattle very young the other (white) has little much like my black chick did.

    Is is safe to assume the buff is a boy and the other is a girl?

    I would love some input!

    Thanks

    The buff one is definitely a rooster. As for your black one, I'm not entirely sure. The comb/wattles are a bit red/prominent for a pullet, but they could be like that because she's about to start laying. For now, the white one looks like a pullet.

    For now I would say that the rest of them are pullets, only the buff is a rooster. Cute silkies though! :)

    Thanks for letting us know the outcome! At least you got one pullet from the three.
