*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 as pullets when young have been DNA sexed which is 99.9% guaranteed, but not cheap unfortunately so this does add to the price! 

Silkies sold as unsexed 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.

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. 

I will also rarely sell a hen on her own, chooks need company and one cannot be introduced into an existing flock on her own without bullying.
