    Nice little Silkies. You are about 8 weeks away from definite sex determination. I will make a preliminary guess on the larger one. I think it is a pullet based on the crest development. Having made that guess it could be a really good quality bird and develop streamers in that crest next week and I would change my opinion to male.

    Sometimes you can look for spur nubs( they would look like a scale just a little different) at this a age and tell I know on my line of whites I can tell this way from week one through week four! But not all lines will be able to do it with depends on if the hens in the line get spur Nubs as they get older???

    I just have this feeling that those are all roos... but that makes no sense. Anyway, Silkies can take up to the first egg/crow.

    Thanks everyone, im praying they are pulleys so I don't have to get rid of them. I just love them to death, wish we didn't have a no rooster rule
