All pictures are the same silkie. I just don't know if it's a roo or Pullet.??
How old? I don't really know much about sexing them...Have you tried posting on the Silkie sexing thread? Here's the link https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/579215/silkie-sexing
I would say Rooster, but silkies are hard to sex. how old is he? With that big of wattles and comb I would say Rooster. Mine are 4 months old and they don't have wattles yet.
I'd say rooster too, but silkies are so hard to tell. The "poof" on the boys tends to stick up more and has streamers (longer feathers). The girls tends to be a little rounder.
What are wattles lol. I think he/she is around 4-5 months (I think?)
Here are some reference pics. I don't know if they'll help much though.
These two picture are of a couple of my hens. They are about a year old here, and their combs are pretty small and their head "poofs" are more round.
This was one of my guys at around 14 weeks. His comb and wattles are much more visible because of his coloring.
A wattle is the fleshy things hanging from the head/ neck
My guess would be cockerel.
I'd say cockerel.
