She/he is about 16 weeks. No crowing and no real comb. Still hard For me to tell!

Silkies are notoriously tricky when gender guessing so please do not make any decisions until (s)he crows or lays an egg

You can, however, put me down as a vote for pullet at this stage.

Hey oeander, your welcome BUT [and a big but

] I have been wrong in the past with my own.

Nothing is screaming rooster though and she has such a sweet face .. she is a cutie.

When you do know for sure, can you please let us know?

I'm leaning toward pullet BUT, need to see a photo of her comb from the front. Is this a hatchery bird? Otherwise I would expect a better crest on her/him.
