Boy or girl. 10-11 week old silkie. Please help.

Sexing silkies is tough, but I'd say it's a male because of the wattle size at 10/11 weeks old.

Wattle is big but the puff is rounded, hummmm?  Don't see streamers & she more "round than tall"...I'll guess pullet and hope you let us know if you get an egg or crow :)

Cockerel, and I usually can't tell with silkies. That comb and those wattles are just too well developed too early for a pullet.
