    and if you ask why, you said, "Any thoughts..." Thats my guess...

    Silkies can be a real pain in the rear to sex... Its a cutie though.

    You may not know until it crows or lays. Silkies are difficult.

    its to early to give a good guess on its gender wait till its about 12 weeks of age then take a profile shot and a comb shot but these lil ones are hard to sex and it is best to wait till they crow or lay...but please update some of us (like myself) like to know if we guessed right lol along with seeing a fully or almost fully grown chicken :)
