I incubated and hatched it myself and I have no idea if it's male or female? Some help would be great, it is the only silkie that survived from the batch of 6 so I have nothing to compare it to... If anyone has any idea ?? Thank you !

In silkies the hen has a more rounded fuzzy head while the roo has a spiky,sometimes with longer feathers pointing backward,type crest. Also the male has longer hackle feathers. He/she looks pretty young so its still in the air. But with that fluffy head it may turn out to be a hen,just dont get hopes up. I had a silkie rooster that I was absolutely sure was a hen, that was he started crowing one day....... Leppy was quite the fireball.
