    These are the best photos I could get! The breeder said she was pretty sure it's a hen but with silkies you can't be 100%! What do you all think? [​IMG]

    There is no comb whatsoever and some of the other babies already had streamers and combs.

    Seems to be a hen to me, if you compare her to the others and her comb and streamers are not as noticeable, there's a good chance she's a hen!

    Yes! I hope so blondey and thanks. I can't have a roo and were so attached to this littke one I'd hate to have it taken away! I have one more silkie I'm almost positive is a hen. When we introduced the two to our other birds this one in the pictures attacked my hens, so it made me think roo because I thought it was kinda like a roo protecting his hen.
