Ok...my little one is all healed. She is one spoiled baby but now I wonder is it a little Hen or a Little Rooster. It is 3 months old.

I'm going to say rooster because of the crest. It's swept back and exposes the comb which I think is a sign of a rooster. With my little girl's crest you couldnt see her comb or eyes!

Here is a picture of my girl I used to have at 4 months old.

1st pic looks like it has streamers coming from its poof which would make it a roo. at this age its hackles should eaither be rounded for a hen or pointed for a roo, my advice is to take some sort of cloth like a black or red color and take a few of those neck feathers (hackles) and place them on that it has helped several people figure out what sex their silkies were.

Thank you everyone for your replies. Just a bit more of information. Her crest is messed up due to an attack from my Brahmas that almost cost this little one it's life. A month later and finally the wound has healed and new feather are coming out.
This is what it look like before the accident...
