    The crest looks rooish. However it is still rather young and silkies are very difficult to sex at a young age.
    How is its behavior compared to the others?

    Way too young to tell.

    Silkies can be tough. I had a buff I thought was a pullet until 8 months of age. Have a friend who was all set to sell a 9 month old cockerel, then he laid an egg. So you may want to wait until that chick crows or lays an egg.

    Too young. I could guess, but it would only be 50/50 :)
    I think you should repost pictures in a few weeks when it's easier to tell.
