Can anyone guess the sex of these three 2 month old silkies?
Should I wait a couple more months for more definitive photos?
Thanks.
The kids want to know.... Yeah right, the kids!

Silkies are really hard to tell this early, unless they start crowing.
My youngest started crowing at 11 weeks, but in some cases it has been 4 months before I could start to tell what the sex was.

Im going to make a guess. The lighter color one looks like a roo, and the one in the largest picture looks like a pullet. the other I cant tell.

I think you have two roos and a pullet. The Light Blue one is definitely a roo. The Black one with the large well rounded crest is a pullet. The other Black one with the small pointy crest I believe to be a male also.

Thanks,
That confoirms what I was thinking based on their behaviors and close ups. I appreciate everyone having a say. We were thinking roo on the light one too.
