    Hello all!
    I have this sweet, soft little thought-to-be silkie-cochin cross. It is 4 weeks old.
    I can't seem to identify what kind of comb she/he has. It looks like a mix of a regular comb and a silkie comb. But that's not my biggest Q.
    Can you identify what gender? I really really hope it's a girl!!
    My avatar is him/her also.

    I'll put a vote in for pullet...but I am NO expert...I am guessing based on the lack of comb.

    I'll cross my fingers for you. She looks soooo sweet! What a cutie!

    Me thinks it's too early to tell just yet.

    too young! especially since it is a silkie mix (the dark skin makes it hard to sex by 'coloring up' on red/normal skin tones) also it doesn't have a single comb,(looks like it has a peacomb) so it could be another month or two before you can get a good idea!
