    This is my only silkie out of five that hasn't crowed (yet). I'm sure hoping it is a hen. It's so sweet and I enjoy watching her :)

    15 weeks old. At 15 weeks old, would it be safe to say it is a hen? She has the tiniest waddles. Barely there.

    It looks like a pullet to me as well, but...

    Bearded Silkie cockerels won't get large wattles, at least they shouldn't.

    I would love to see her comb with crest pulled back to be certain but, I will say she looks like a pullet and beautiful one too
