    Hi, these are some of my first ever hatchlings - one is silkie (i believe), the others are serama - i'd really like to know what gender they are if it's possible to tell at this age (5 weeks)? Thanks in advance :)

    Wow, I'm pretty new to this and only make this guess based on looking at thread after thread in this area - my guess is that they are ALL little dudes... [​IMG]

    But I'm no expert, so hopefully others can weigh in with more educated information.
