    OK, I have an overwhelming feeling that this is a boy, but wanted a few second opinions. This boy/girl is almost 10 weeks old now. It stands tall and is seems to be constantly looking out for the others. What do you think?

    Looks like a boy, but then again, I have a hen with a comb like that. Silkies are so hard to sex. I have three silkies-I knew Elvira was a girl because she was already laying (otherwise I would have bet my life she was a roo), but I wasn't sure about Gwen and Daisy until they started getting "attention" from Kip the roo.
