I've submitted these silkies before but still need help identifying my 5 month old buff silkie. He/She is acting like a rooster, keeping watch, acting dominate, sleeps on top of the coop keeping watch, etc... But looks like a hen, rounded crest, soft tail (even softer then my silkie hens (that are laying)), and smaller in size. Although He/she does look like he/she has some streamers coming out the back of his/her head, and his/her hackle feathers are kinda frizzle-y.
His/her round crest. You can kinda see the brown feathers on his/her head that have a different texture to them.
You can see his/her tail feathers are softer then the black one (a hen).
And here you can see he/her is slightly smaller then the other two hens.
Don't take my word for as I just asked about my silkie XD But I think he/she may be a cockerel considering those streamer like feathers. But he/she does have feminine comb, so also could be a pullet.
