    This silkie is 20 weeks old- named Dart. Dart looks girlish, but is larger than our other pullet, and has a very long neck in comparison. Her/his head has a medium sized puff, but is not round and large like our other pullet. I just can't tell! Any help appreciated!

    If there are other shots that would help - please let me know. I don't really know what I am looking for!

    Hmmm I really am not sure but my guess would be a pullet. I have a couple of blue silkie roo's that are crowing and interested in the hens and they are only 4 months old so if he/she is not crowing than that makes me think that she may be a pullet even more. [​IMG]

    Pullet. The roos will have really wide combs by 20 weeks. [​IMG]

    Yes It's a pullet. By 20 weeks it should be bigger I have 14 weeks old roos that already have huge combs.
