    The body type looks female to me. And very Silkie-ish type body.

    Comb looks female too.

    I say girl.

    :D Thank you! I have been so worried since this was our ONLY egg we hatched from our stock.

    None of my little ones are crowing yet, so I have nothing to base that on.
    I noticed that the comb is really just a little bump. The father is a silkie with a pretty decent walnut, while the mom is an EE with a little peacomb.
