    How old ? Not a silky - perhaps a cochin bantam.

    With that much comb and wattle development at 10 weeks, I believe the bird is a cockerel.

    Cute, but I don’t think it’s a silky.

    This one is tricky because it is a Birchen Cochin and the males and females are different in colour. Yours is coloured like a hen would be. How long has the bird’s combs and wattles been red like that?

    Also whoever told you any bantams should be hens if you bought them as chicks gave you incorrect info as TSC doesn’t sell sexed bantams. The only hatcheries/suppliers I know of that sells sexed bantams are My Pet Chicken and Cackle but birchen cochins aren’t a variety they sell.
