Thanks alot, great news. And im not sure if its that or she just loves splashing into mud puddles lol. Actually I hatched her myself, she was lucky to be the only who hatched out of 6 eggs.

With silkies there is always a chance, they are notoriously hard to sex when young.

I agree, the only thing that makes me hesitant about this one is that the hair on its head is flat and normally silkie hens would have that rounded hair style on their head
