    I'm usually pretty good with sexing silkies, but when it comes to my own my guesses aren't as good.

    I had this one nailed as a pullet until I saw some possible streamer development. That, or she has crazy hair.

    I apologize for the lack of good crest and comb pictures ,she would not stop bobbing her head around.

    I'm not good at silkies, but I would still say a pullet

    i am leaning towards a cockerel due to the way the crest looks and the part of the comb that i can see along with the way the hackles look

    Hmm, well I was hoping for a pullet, but he seems like he will be a nice cockerel!
    Thank you for your help!
