    Hi everyone,

    My father in law gave us 3 chicks in October. I'm just wondering what sex you think they are.

    They arent crowing or laying and the are around 24 weeks old now.

    He told us they are silkie crosses, we are none the wiser.

    Many thanks :)

    Check their hackles and saddles for pointed feathers. If they have super pointy feathers; they're boys. Silkies and some other breeds often take quite awhile to start laying.
