    Well at 26 weeks old I'd think she'd be crowing by now if it was a rooster.

    silkies are late bloomers, so you might have a reason to be worried.What is the comb looking like?

    Yeah, what a character! [​IMG] I also think a girl. My silkie boy (who's not 100% pure silkie) has a much bigger comb than that and he is about the same age.
