    Opinions welcomed! This is Sezzy my 28 week old Silkie Bantam from mypetchicken.com I am hoping she is a hen but am not sure do to these factors:

    She has spurs
    No eggs yet
    she seems to have long streamer feathers on her puff
    she has grown some longer stiff feathers on her bottom puff

    Please give me your best guess!

    Difficult to tell as only the two head shots you have uploaded are of any use in terms of sexing. Both sexes get spurs and at that age male spur size = female spur size. A whole body shot would be useful, as would be a front - on head shot clearly showing the size of the comb. For now I will tentatively say that you have a pullet.

    Silkies can be tricky, but I would bet pullet.
