    I don't see obvious streamers but it is too early to know. Silkies are very difficult to tell the gender - especially at that teenager phase where they may act "henlike" or "roosterlike" but then they turn around and end up being the opposite of what you thought! :)

    So I am going to guess a pullet. But I really don't know.
