sexing silkie chickens (9 wks old) : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

My silkies are now 9 weeks old and I still can't tell hens from roosters. When will I be able to tell the difference?

My cornish rocks that are the same age are easy to tell apart.

go out there,, early in the morning,, see which ones leave the toilet seat up,,, those are the roosters

My oldest showed Silkies for years. In a few more weeks you will start to see the combs change. They are great to raise, very sweet birds.
