Thanks for the tag.😊
This bird looks about 10 weeks old? It’s too early to tell. No wattles yet so that’s a good sign. Has a wide comb but it’s not raised as far as I can tell.
Are they like standard silkies ? Wait until they lay or crow ? I have a brother n I can tell it a roo it have full red comb n wattles but this one idk 🤷‍♀️ with my luck it might be a roo too😆

Yes they are like standard Silkies in that it can be difficult to tell gender early on. Is this bird around 10 weeks? You don’t state the age. This one appears to be beardless so should be easier to tell gender earlier on. Males will develop significant wattles.
This bird is looking female to me so far.😊
