    I was def. leaning towards female because it's so light weight and the shape of the comb too.

    Silkies are hard at all ages. I say female but the height makes me think differently...

    I'm gonna be an oddball and say roo. My silkie hen's body is much much more compact and her tail is not that huge off her back. Also, I would think that so far as weight or size goes, a hen may very well be heavier if its a bantam...comb-wise though, I'm not so sure.
