*Silkies are very hard to sex at an early age. Sometimes it is possible to identify cockerels by their behaviour but it is hard to tell otherwise. Silkies where stated are guaranteed hens and will usually be at least several months old. Silkies at £12 or less are not guaranteed hens and if they do grow up to be cockerels there is no exchange for a hen (when available). But I can take back cockerels for possible rehoming if you do not want them.

Deathlayers and wyandottes are also impossible to sex for several weeks. The difference cannot be seen until their combs start changing.

Please note I do not normally sell pairs/trios/breeding groups as they would be related, unless they are different colours. You will need to find an unrelated cockerel for a healthy breeding group, especially for deathlayers. Most deathlayers in the UK will be very closely related to mine so one from abroad would breed healthier chicks.
