    The link doesn't work for me. Could you please put up a head first photo with crest held back to display entire comb? Beautiful silkie

    Silkies are hard to sex. If I had to guess, I would say cockerel.

    I'll get a better picture tomorrow in the daylight. I'm thinking it's a roo because to me it has hackle feathers and it's head fluff goes up and also back. My rooster has these features. But it's tail feathers look like my hens. I really want it to be a hen! It's so pretty!
