Hmm...I have never had any chicks like that but I have had ones that had the "attitude" of a rooster but turned into hens. If he's actually attacking your hand, that could be major sign of aggression problems that could be worse later on when he's larger. I've never had that happen so I don't really know what to tell you. Try posting on the Silkie thread.
