Black Silkie: Cockerel or Pullet? Please help!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello!  

 

I'm new to owning Silkies (just got one today!) and I'm trying to determine if I have a cockerel or pullet...anyone care to weigh in based on the photos?  S(he)'s pictured here with our Polish hen.

If I had to guess I'd say 4-6 months, but I can't say for sure.

Likely it's a pullet then.
