    Since it's a silkie it's actually really hard to tell. On some of them you can't even tell until they crow or lay an egg. That said, the comb seems pretty wide and the crest looks swept back, plus I think I'm seeing wattle development so I'd be cautious that it may be a rooster. Hopefully some master silkie sexers will stop by and help you out.
