    Hi everyone,

    Just wondering what your thoughts were on one of my partridge silkies. Not sure if its a cockrel or a pullet. Very interested to know what he/ she may be. Photos are from days old to three weeks which is the most current photo that i have.

    Still too early to tell. Silkies are tough! I saw you had also posted this on the Silkie thread and everyone told you they thought it was a rooster. I would completely disregard that, for now.
    One thing you can watch for, since its a partridge, is feather color (they boys and girls look different, which allows partridges to be sexed earlier than other colors). The girls will be a nice, even brown and the boys will have more red/mahogany patches.
