I am by no means the silkie expert but my exp with them is HARD TO SEX by just looking...best think you can do is FEEL the pelvic bones...closer together its a male, wider apart its a female.

Yep, way to young still to even make a guess and the pelvic bone thing only works when they are much older.
At that still isn't right all the time!
Silkies are ticky tricky tricky!!

I can usually tell by how a chick carries or the stance when upright. Hard to explain but the cockerels just seem to stand a strut taller. All of my male silkie chicks had less poofy crest than the females. It is tough with a single chick to tell without looking for the variations to the others.
