    THe first pic it looks like a boy...the other 2 i say pullet. You should take a pic of it next to a "FOR SURE" Silkie Pullet or Hen....we can compare/contrast. I personally think that the males have bigger features (eyes are bigger, the beaks seem bigger, the head seem bigger, etc).

    It's definitely a hen (with a 50% + or - error factor)
