    My silkie chicks are now about 14 week old. This is one in particular that I am keen to know whether it is a 'he' or a 'she' and I would love anyone with more knowledge than me to offer their opinions. He or she is a lovely red colour and is very friendly. I have tried to get photos from a few angles, as well as of the cone. Initially I thought he was a boy, then I thought maybe a girl and now I think I'm leaning back more towards boy. Any thoughts??
