Ah yes. Silkies are one of the hardest breeds to sex, unfortunately. How old are yours? From the pic, the bird's comb is cut off so I can't quite see it, but I don't see anything else screaming rooster at the moment. You might want to post more pics here for more advice and input.

Good luck and, again, welcome!:frow

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

Usually they cannot be sexed with accuracy before 4-5 mos. of age.   and sometimes not till they crow or lay eggs.  Even breeders   have trouble figuring out who is who.
