    I have 4 silkies which we got in a straight run... Is there a good way to tell the difference between a boy and girl? They are about 2 weeks old now and they still all look the same!!

    Not until they are quite a bit older than two weeks.

    Silkies are very difficult to sex until someone crows or lays an egg. They are one of the hardest breeds to sex.
