She/he is about 16 weeks. No crowing and no real comb. Still hard For me to tell!

Silkies are notoriously tricky when gender guessing so please do not make any decisions until (s)he crows or lays an egg :)

 

You can, however, put me down as a vote for pullet at this stage.

Thanks!  You're vote of confidence makes me happy!  I have several from this batch that seem to be turning out to be roos...hearing hen is nice!

Hey oeander, your welcome BUT [and a big but ;)] I have been wrong in the past with my own.

 

Nothing is screaming rooster though and she has such a sweet face .. she is a cutie.

 

When you do know for sure, can you please let us know?

If there is no further comb development, I'd say pullet.

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

I'm leaning toward pullet BUT, need to see a photo of her comb from the front.  Is this a hatchery bird?  Otherwise I would expect a better crest on her/him.
