    I have silkies but not very good at judging sexes on them , I have 5 I have to post to see if anyone can guess mine, LOL . I do know that boys head piece is more whispy kinda flowing back, and a girls is more rounded. It kinda looks like your silkie is wet in the picture so it is hard to tell , but Im going to say Roo, but don't worry like I said I'm not very good with them, So I'm probably wrong. Good luck getting whatever sex you want! Sandy
    PS you might want to post a whole body shot (profile) it might help. [​IMG]

    I would say rooster. Its crest is more spiky than round and fluffy. And its comb is rather large. My full grown hen's comb is not that big. Silkies are really hard to tell though. Some you cant even tell until they lay an egg or crow. You should find SonoranSilkies or Elite Silkies or someone on here That breeds silkies and knows them well and ask them. Maybe one of them will wander onto this post.
