I'm pretty sure I just got the news that I dreaded most. My favorite 9 wk old silkie D'uccle cross, is a boy. He didn't crow, but he showed rooster-like actions. I showed him a little toy helecopter and he attaked it like a roo.
Please, please please tell me it's a girl.

It looks like a girl. Rounded feathers, no comb.

I think it was just curious about the helicopter

Yes. Until he reached 14 weeks, my cockerel didn't seem to know he was "the man" and one of the pullets was performing all of the "rooster duties" (short of mating). Prior to sexual maturity, you really can't go by behavior.

I don't know anything about silkies - but I have to say I started giggling thinking about "the helicopter test" to determine if a chick is a boy or a girl.

Good luck - hope it's a girl!
