    Waaaaaaay to early to tell. Silkies can take forever to show their true gender.

    Barred hen x non-barred roo = sex-linked chicks. From what I can tell, you have a little pullet. [​IMG]

    Being that the chick should be Sex-linked......if it has a white spot on top of its head---it's a boy.......if not---it's a girl. It is kind of hard for me to tell if it does or not from the lighting or maybe the blue color.

    I don't see a white spot. Assume girl for now. (why can't I write "girl" in pink?) [​IMG]
