    Someone locally has unsexed silkie chicks for sale. They are about a week old. Is there anyway to tell the sex of these with some accuracy. I would only want females if possible.

    thanks

    Except for Murphy--if you want boys, you'll choose girls. And vice versa [​IMG]

    If you only want females, you'd do better buying 6 month old birds....
