Silkies are notoriously the hardest chicken breed to sex. Are you able to get more pictures, including at least one nice profile shot of the chicken standing on it's own? This way we can see the stance, and the back and tail feathers.

ETA: Also, do you know how many weeks old s/he is?

The small, swept back crest (which looks to have streamers developing off the back) makes me think its a cockerel. But, its young and Silkies are hard to sex.
