    I have been thinking Ladybird was a girl because her comb and wattles were significantly smaller than her half-brother's and he has been crowing for a while now and she hasn't, and she is smaller than him. But today, they were fighting a lot and I noticed some longer feathers on her head and she grabbed onto the back of a pullet's head. Is Ladybird really a lady? Let me know if you need more pictures.

    A side shot would really help...

    So far I am 85% on the Hen side.
    He/r comb color though is not the best.

    Edited to ask He/r age?

    I think she's a girl. My one silkie chick that I hatched was a boy- he had a far more swept back hairdo, yours has more of a powder puff thing going on.

    The only thing that made me suspicious was today she grabbed onto another pullet's neck feathers.
