    Hellooo,
    I have a few questions about my silkies! I have one black, and one white. I bought them straight run, and they were hatched early May. Attached I have a few pictures of the silkies. Does anyone know if the comb devolopment on the black silkie means a cockersl? Thanks! [​IMG]

    Much to early to give a creditable opinion. Silkies are among the most difficult breeds to sex before 4-5 mos. of age & often not till they lay or crow.

    It's also better to show comb from the front

    A little young to tell, but the Black one looks like a cockerel and the white one a pullet (so far).
