    I have 3 silkies that are about 9 weeks old and I'm looking for telltale signs of their sex. I wanted to know what streamers or the beginings of streamers in their tail feathers looks like. Are they the feathers that look like regular feathers that some have in their wings? If anyone has any pics especially pics of the beginings of streamers i'd greatly appreciate it.

    Streamers come out from the back of their heads. They look like long Silkie feathers.

    okay they come out of the head and not the tail. that helps I had just decided I had 3 boys if that was the case. If only the head then I don't know because none have grown any. thanks
