    Butter is a full blooded silkie and a couple days short of 4 months old. Any one have a guess on her gender yet or is it to early still, no crowing or loud noises at all unless she is protesting being picked up .

    My wife says that her best bet would be a hen. She came to this conclusion due to no ridge above her beak. We had a Silkie rooster and he had a ridge above his beak. Beautiful Silkie none the less.
