    You both can post photos at "what breed or gender is this." stating the age(in picture) can make a lot of difference.

    Silkies are extremely difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they crow or lay eggs. I would like to see a photo of he/she face forward with the crest held back so you full comb is obvious.
