    Hi, i got a 20 week old Silkie yesterday, and was told it is a Hen, but i'm not so sure after looking online. Could anyone tell me by the photos what sex it is, thanks.

    Do you think you can tell if its a hen or roo, if it's a roo i will be taking it back, which i don't really want to do as it is such a sweet thing, and it will be living in the house with me, a Chihuahua, a Kitten, a Diamond Dove, and 4 Quails.

    Looks like a pullet. At that age, I think it's comb would be much larger and it might be crowing if it was a roo.
