    This is Dame Lancelot.
    She's About Six months old and is a Silkie.
    When we got her the Breeder said she could be a Female but may be a male.
    I'm going to get a DNA Test but I wanted your guys opiniona also.

    Thanks

    I think he's a very pretty cockerel :) He appears to have streamers coming off the back of his crest. Pullets don't get those.

    Probably a cockerel, can you get a better picture of the crest and comb?
