    I have the same looking silkie except she/he has here shiny green tail feathers already and is pretty much full grown. I am hoping its a hen sence my other silkie turned out to be a roo.

    i'm no expert, but wanted to vote nonetheless. Looks like a she to me. i have a black female silkie sexed at the hatchery that looks very similar. (Of course, they also sent me a "female" partridge silkie who turned into a large festery roo.)

    The law of chicken gender is:
    If you want it to be a hen, It'll be a rooster.
    If you want it to be a rooster, It'll be a hen.
