    I brought home 2 white silkies today. they are to die for cute, but I have no clue what sex they are. I'm HOPING they are hens, otherwise they will need to find a new home. Anyone wanna take a gander? They are supposedly about 5-6 months old.

    Edite to add: I'm not sure if they are both the same age or not as they had a ton of them, so size may not necessarily be an indicator.

    I vote females. (with a 50% possibility for error)

    They are 100% ADORABLE, however!

    I would guess hens also ...my Silkie roosters have flat saucer type cones at even an early age.
    I will try to catch a pic & post for you [​IMG]

    I will say the one on the left is a female. I am not sure about the one on the right. I need to see a pic from the side so I can see the stance.
