    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. [​IMG] 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.

    At this age I have no problem telling them when I see them in Person, but with pictures it is so much more difficult.

    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.
