    Here are both chicks together... the one I'm asking about is on the left, I'm 95% sure the one on the right is a roo:

    This was their first time outside (it's shockingly mild today but very overcast), they were sooo curious... also the peepers are much whiter than they look on these terrible pics!

    So what is your expert opinion??

    I'd say yes, it's a girl.

    I sure hope she is... that would leave me with 3 roos and 2 pullets out of my 5 silkies, otherwise i only have ONE girl and the rest all boys, that wouldn't be ideal!
