    At four months she is much too young to tell that she is not SQ--she could well be; silkies are notorious for developing very slowly. It's also possible that as she continues to develop,you may just realize that SHE is HE.

    I showed a pullet at not too much older than that, and of about the same quality as the one pictured; several months later I realized that HE was a cockerel, not a pullet, and the following year he won Champion Bantam at a fairly large show.
