Hi All, I have 5 x Silkie Bantams - I purchased them when they were approx 4wks old. They are approx 10 weeks now. Can I tell yet if they are male or female?

if you dont know what you are looking for, not probably not. But if you post good photos of their heads side on and front on people here will have a go!
