I was hoping this little silkie chick is a female but what do the experts think it is?
I will try and take some more photo's but at present this is the best I could get they won't stay still. :)

Hi Schnapper,I'll try to get a better photo and different angles. This photo was a lucky shot as the wind was so fierce it was almost blowing the chickens feathers off.
And Candijane I was hoping a chicken with pink bows. :lol:

Baz I hope your right I have 2 silkie chickens and the other one has a different back to the pom pom or hair style so will also submit a photo of him/her for comment.
When I bought them I tried to get two with different hair styles as the seller had no idea of sex either. I was hedging my bets so to speak. Well at least I thought I was. :)

Lene, the problem with your attempts at posting the picture was that there was a space for some reason between the first [img] and http, which i removed for you so they both now work.
Just thought id let you know! :D
