Does anyone know what the color of this silkie is and the gender of it. 

 

I have 1 ameraucana, 2 white leghorns, 3 rhode island reds, 3 red sexlinks, 2 anconas, 2 silkies (1 rooster).

It looks like a white silkie with a little splash of buff. As far as gender, he/she is WAY too young to tell as of now. You'll have to post in a few more weeks.

How old is the bird? You generally cannot sex silkies before 4-5 mos. of age or when they crow or lay eggs. They are very difficult. I think the feather color should balance out as it gets older.

The bird is almost 4 weeks old. So you think it will be mainly white?
