    We have two Silkie chicks that are a few months old, and I was wondering if anyone has a guess on their genders? I am hoping for pullets so I can use them in my breeding program.
    Thank you and happy new year!

    The white one is a pullet. I'm not sure about the Partridge one, though.

    Thank you! That was what I was thinking as well, but wanted to get different opinions.

    Agreed. The white one looks like a pullet. Partridge one looks like he might be getting tassels, but I can't see very well on my phone.

    Thanks drumstick diva, I guess I will just have to wait and see for the partridge chick, I'll cross my fingers for a pullet!
