    I have two 6 week old Silkie chicks and cant tell the gender of them. I know they are young yet but your thoughts would be helpful. Also what should I look for in order to tell the gender? Thanks!

    silkies are extremely hard to sex before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they crow or lay eggs. Are these hatchery silkies?

    I guess it's just a waiting game right now, these are silkies I incubated and hatched at home
