    I am thinking that our silkie is a female. We've had the most luck... Hatched 4 eggs and so for 3 are rooster (pretty sure they confirmed with all 3 crowing yesterday). The last one is a silkie and the only one we were hoping was the male. But can't be too sure. I don't really see a comb on her and she is now exactly 3 months old. But I just wanted to confirm for sure. I have been checking all the forums on here and have pretty much come to this conclusion but I just wanted to make sure. [​IMG]

    x2. She's non bearded, if she were a boy, at this point she'd already be sporting much bigger head gear.
