    Compared to our silkies, I think thats a hen. The coloring on it's back isn't.. I guess I could say shiny/silkyish. She looks like our females. Just a guess though.

    Man i had pegged this guy as a rooster. Glad I didnt get rid of it yet. I thought that the little spikeys in the puff means boy.

    I'm sorry I can't help you out with gender.
    Off topic but do they really feel like how they look? They look soft like a cat or something.
