I am looking to buy silkies to add to my flock. Found someone who is selling them but they cannot sex them. They are 10 weeks old. I was wondering if anyone here could? I am not able to have roosters in my township so wouldn't want to have to rehome one or both later on. I can't attach pictures so here is the link: https://www.kijiji.ca/v-livestock/m...not-sexed-about-10-weeks/1541691128?undefined,

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Honestly at 10 weeks they’re too young to be sure. But they both look like boys to me at this age. The trick with Silkies is you just can’t be sure and even highly educated guesses can be quite wrong! The price is good but you may end up with boys that you’ll have to rehome. If you want to be sure to get female silkies you have to get some that have been DNA tested for gender at hatch. This cost quite a bit more money if you can find anyone who does it but then you’ll be sure to have females.😊
