    This bearded silkie chick I THINK is about 4 weeks old. That's still pretty young to tell, I realize, but was curious to see what people think who have more experience on here. [​IMG]

    I am perfectly willing to be overruled :) I have 6 white silkie chicks that aren't old enough for sexing, but I've been paying close attention to the tips on how to do so.
