I've been reading and searching and reading some more on things to look for when trying to accomplish the near impossible job of sexing a juvenile Silkie. Assuming that there are no distinguishing physical characteristics to determine the sex, maybe you experts can help me according to the chickens behavior. We picked "her" up yesterday from a local breeder and was told "she" was around 9-10 weeks or so. When we got home we added her to the coop where the only other birds are 3 pullets between 9 & 13 weeks old (Barred Rock, Cochin & Australorp). The initial concern was the 3 ganging up on the newcomer Silkie but it was quickly evident that it was going to be the other way around. Now, the Silkie doesn't all out attack any of the others but is definitely a butt to them, running over to them pecking one on the head just because and pushing the others around and off of feed. At this age, would these behaviors indicate the Silkie to be a pullet possibly? My thoughts are that's the case and she's just trying to make her way into the pecking order of everything but I'm no expert! I did read that Silkie cockerels will tend to be sweeter and bolder when young and get more skittish as it gets older and the pullets will be more stand offish when young and get sweeter as they get older. Any help or input would be greatly appreciated here. Thanks so much in advance!
