    Hi, I have some 12 week old chickens that I need help telling the breed and sex of. I know one is a white silkie but I'm just not 100% sure if it's a hen or not. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

    Silkies are difficult to sex even at 12 weeks.
    Both the others look suspiciously like boys to me and both look like crosses.

    white silkie is a pullet and the other two look very much like cockerels.
