They are about 7 weeks got them at the same time wondering what gender they are[/IMG][/IMG]
Too young to say for silkies.
Ditto, not only are they very young, but your far away pic doesn't help much either. Silkies are one of, if not the most difficult breeds to sex. Give them a few months and then get some good close ups of their combs/faces and a full body shot of them from the side. Then we might be able to at least guess
The waiting game really stinks but it's the only way to know for sure! Good luck and welcome to the site!
How old are they when the male silky crows?
I think it depends on the quality of the birds and the line they came from, but my Silkie boy didn't let a crow fly until he was almost 8 month old...
OK thats pretty good - how often and how loud does he crow? I'm trying to find the most appropriate cockerel that I could keep without annoying the neighbours too much.
He crows once or twice in the morning and maybe a few times throughout the day. He's an only rooster tho. When I've had more they would compete with each other. He makes a screeching noise when he thinks there's danger however (which is ALOT) and its much louder than his crow!
One of my silkies keeps flapping its wings around and streching its neck out and opening its mouth likes its gonna crow but nothing happens the other one has never done any of those things lol
