    Hi All, Gertrude is a mutt chick - I am guessing mixed with silkie because of the poof on top of the head. She is just about 8 weeks and I am hoping she stays Gertrude. Please let me know if you have any thoughts - Thanks so much![​IMG]

    The pictures won't load, to check if it's a pullet or cockerel, check the comb, wattles and legs. The bigger and redder the comb and wattles are it's more likely a rooster.

    Thank you! That looks like a pullet, the crest is very small and the comb is reddening.
