    I have been dying to know the gender of my silkies for 5 months!! Anyone ?

    I am almost 100% that this one is a rooster,but I have seen both silkies fight each other also.He fights the other roos through the pens and he has always been larger,has a bigger comb and his is turning red.The spot of skin near his ear is now GREEN instead of blue.

    And heres the one I think may be a hen,she is smaller and the spot near the ear is BLUE,whereas the other ones is green.[​IMG]

    I may be wrong because silkies are very hard to sex. But the first one looks like a rooster and the second looks like a hen.
