    My blue silkies are 5 weeks old today and I am attempting to try and sex them (I have leg bands on them so I can tell them apart, so I will list them that way), each has a profile, beak, and comb pic -

    Yellow band (pullet?):

    I would say these guys are still to young to sex. With my silkies I usually can't tell what sex they are until they are at least 8-10 weeks. Someone else might be able to tell. Sorry wasn't much help.

    I agree that they're too young to tell. I have 3 1/2 month olds that I'm still not sure about.
