    Only one image is showing up, but it looks like it's a little young to tell.

    I have 3 silkies (purchased 3 weeks ago) that need to be sexed as well. I'm new to all chickens, but these fluff balls are soooo different than my "normal" sized gals that just started laying (about 24 weeks old). Hatch date for the silkies was June 23, making them about 3.5 months old. [​IMG]
