    Alrighty, this one's supposed to be a partridge, but looks more like a red. She (I'm still optimistic) Hatched out around April 27, which makes it about 14 weeks old. Opinions????

    Head shot (No noticeable comb or wattles)

    I agree with the hen part - and I am also new to silkies. I have a few, but sexing them this young is just HARD! Best Wishes! [​IMG]

    I do believe it is a partridge, and I am also thinking hen. But that does look like streemers! I hope not! [​IMG]

    I'm hoping it's a girl, but that back of the head shot has me worried.
