    Hello!

    I'm new to owning Silkies (just got one today!) and I'm trying to determine if I have a cockerel or pullet...anyone care to weigh in based on the photos? S(he)'s pictured here with our Polish hen.

    If I had to guess I'd say 4-6 months, but I can't say for sure.

    I can't see all of her comb - but, think she is a pullet

    Likely it's a pullet then.
