    Please tell me if there is a way to sex silkies? I really would like to know if there are any ways to tell.
    Thank you.

    I've been told it's very tough. Sometimes they are several months old before you can tell.

    That is what I have heard also. I was just hopeing that if there was a way someone would tell me. I have some chicks, and a friend of mine just bought two silkies at an auction but has no idea what they are M/F?
