    Welcome to BYC!
    Silkies are notoriously difficult to sex - in order to make a good effort on your bird we will need to know the approximate age (in weeks is best) and have a nice, clear shot of the bird in side profile, showing the entire bird.

    also a nice, clear headshot - facing forward, with crest held or pulled back to show comb development.

    Does your bird have 5 toes on each foot, pigment should be dark on legs, comb, beak, skin and any wattles that develop.
