    My silkie is a bit over 2 months old now and I cannot figure out what gender he/she is!! I am thinking hen because she (Nera) follows our rooster around like a puppy and calls for him when he is away. What do y'all think??

    Looks like a pullet, but I am no Silkie expert!

    I never would have thought to look at posture! Anything else to look for in silkies to give hints of male or female... Besides crowing or laying an egg!lol
