    I know that this bird is young but he looks like a roo to me. He was born in July so he is around 2 months old.

    I'm going to guess a hen. But, Silkies are really hard to sex...so, who knows. [​IMG]

    Just by going by stance I'd say boy, the crest sweeps back too rather than be rounded like a hen, although no obvious comb and wattles but the bird is still young, if you can't keep him I would definitely wait a bit longer before you decide so you know for sure, keep us updated!
