    Well now that you mention it, she could be a showgirl.

    Does she have a naked neck? if so then she's a showgirl, if not, she's a silkie.

    So, it is a silkie, but what breed is it? A hen or roo, or would it be best just to wait until it lays or crows?

    A Silkie is a breed. It is a White silkie, I'd say a hen and they should make great broodies.
