I'm leaning towards cockerel but am not sure. It is hard to tell with Silkies.

Always happy to answer questions! You can ask me about diseases, raising chicks, feeding, and breeds!

At 3.5 months, definitely.  None of my hens have anywhere close the amount of comb and wattles even when they are older.

Looks like a cockerel to me.

Never give up. While we still live there is hope. With God all things are possible.

I'm thinking cockerel, too.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost

Thanks everyone. His brothers crowed very early but he hasn't yet. He's a dead ringer for his Dad so I'm pretty confident he's a roo.

COCKEREL      when there are other roosters  present,  the less dominant males don't crow because they may get thrashed.  If he were alone  among hens, he probably would have  crowed by now.
