This is Night. He's the sweetest chicken I've ever had. All it takes is for me to sit down for 5 minutes and he jumps on my shoulder.

I've always thought he's a rooster because of his behavior and scrawny looking feathers, especially the tail. His sister (same age) has a way rounder crest, small, round, fluffy tail and overall a more feminine appearance.
The only thing that makes me think is the comb. My other boys have bigger combs at this age. I want to sell him as a cockerel, but what if he's a pullet? 2 of his possible mothers have longer scrawny looking tails too... he's smaller than my other cockerels, but ever so slightly bigger than my pullets.

OH MY! I just realized I got his age slightly wrong. he's 9 weeks old and not 10 weeks. I accidentally got him mixed up with my other 6 silkies that are a week older.
