    I think Ameraucanas and EEs are much harder to sex than Silkies. What do you think?

    EE's are easer
     
  6. It's rare that you have to wait 5 months or more to be able to sex an EE. Heck, by that time they are either crowing or laying. Not so with silkies!!!

    Silkies are harder. With EE's, the roos will turn red in the comb more quickly. But silkies, with those poofs on their heads, are just hard to tell period :p

    Silkies are harder, IMO.

    ETA: I would change the title to "Which breed do you think is harder to sex", it makes more sense.
