    I'm sorry but I don't understand what you mean by a silkies crowned. Are you referring to the comb a silkie has.? If you are asking how to tell sex, silkies are very difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age. Generally the male will have a larger,wider comb coming up and the females have a smaller, narrow one. But I am sure there are exceptions to that. There are several silkie threads on here - my favorite is just called SILKIE THREAD. You could put that in the search box and it should pop up. Maybe you could post pictures.
