    You'll need to post at least one additional photo for an evaluation -- a nice shot showing the whole bird (legs included) from side profile in natural lighting. We also need to know the approximate age of the bird (weeks is best if known).

    Silkies can be hard to sex at a young age, however, with a walnut comb that size at that age, I'm leaning towards cockerel. I'd wait it out a bit more though.
