That silkie is too young to sex for sure. Silkies are one of the hardest breeds to sex so I'd wait a couple more weeks. But, it is looking mighty suspicious to me due to the large comb.

Take delight in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him and He will do this: He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn... Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him.

Ack!  I was worried about that comb....  My no-doubt-about-it silkie rooster has a much smaller comb than this character has already developed.  Sigh.  I have so MANY roosters!  I should be kept apart from all chickens until their first egg is safely on the nest.  This is because I get so involved with them as individuals, that when the time comes to get rid of one, I can hardly do it!  I am a terrible bleeding-heart.  All they have to do is appear to like me, and they have my utter loyalty.  Pathetic, honestly. 

 

Thank you!

Patience

Rooster in my opinion.

Too young to be sure.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

They have their exits and their entrances,

If you don't want  all the roosters,  you can buy pullets at point of lay, or  laying hens.  With silkies being so hard to ID gender- it's the best way to avoid the rooster problem.

 

I'm thinking yours is a roo because of the comb at this age.  He is very young but, his comb isn't going to shrink.
