    Between 9 and 12 weeks my silkies changed ALOT. Feel free to see them here: http://www.trek4nets.org/Chickens.html for comparison. Watch for the waddle and for what happens with the crest on top. The ones we think are girls have a more rounded crest and no waddle or very small waddle. Only one crows still so we are not positive what we have either but I so see interesting changes in them all each day.

    Looks female to me, currently, though the picture is somewhat blurry.
