    I think its too early to tell for sure. We just learned our hen was a roo at 10 weeks. I am not familiar with that breed either. Might have to sweat it out a little [​IMG]

    Quote:LOL I love my silkies but i never thought when i got into this breed they were so hard to sex. Once i find out the gender of these 6 chicks once they begin to grow or lay. I have 6 more right behind them that I will have to sweat it out on there gender..LOL Gotta love those silkies [​IMG]

    The whites look like cockerels, the black looks like a pullet, and as for the greys, the pics still aren't clear enough to tell [​IMG]

    Quote:LOL...I knew for sure one of the whites was a roo but I wasn't for sure about the other. Guess I'll have to either rehome one or get some more females to go with the 2.

    My aunt has 4 chicks that are all pullets I think we may have to do some tading..LOL otherwise she wont have a rooster..LOL

    With my silkies the hens always seem to have a flat back where the roosters seem to have a dip between their tail and neck if that makes sense...lol
    Roosters seem to stand more upright. Its really hard to tell with silkies. The rooster will have more comb. One of your whites looks like a hen and the black too. But i'm no expert.
