    could you get a better pick of the comb and head, gonna say pullet because of the poof, but a better picture is needed to determine.

    Thank you, chicken lover. "She" is a sweet intelligent chicken! But we heard a crow from "her". So I am hoping "she" is one of those crowing pullet. ; )
    Behavioral wise I was so sure it is a "she". The other cockerel tried to "chest bump" but she never responds to that.
    My hen picking ratio is pathetic -- so far 1 hen and 5 that turned out to be roosters. 6 if this one (honey) turns out to be a rooster too.

    the comb also says pullet but I'm hoping you get another girl, as for all of those boys you will have to keep your girl separate from at least all but one because she could end up with missing feathers.

    Young Silkies can be notoriously difficult to sex even for experienced chicken owners, but it looks like a pullet to me.
