    i have two new
    Silkies, I’m hoping one’s a
    Roo. Info: 5 weeks
    old, one has a
    little more fluff
    on it’s head and tail, also, when I flipped them over one’s tail went up and one’s down. I think it’s a shot in the dark but anyone have an idea?

    They are too young to sex at this point.

    I think first pic could be a roo, it has roo tendencies, more alert, making sure the other chick has food before it eats.

    Still too young to be sure, especially considering these are Silkies. :) Behavior has little to do with gender.

    In the meantime, what a cute little puffball!
