    How old is it? It's so hard to tell with silkies. Some times it seems they morph into boys over night. I was convinced one of mine was a girl until it crowed. It was about 7 months old.

    No they take their sweet time growing up. Mine just started laying last week and they hatched out around Thanksgiving.
