    Im not an expert in sexing frizzles and silkies, but the grey frizzle looks like a pullet.

    I think that your assessment is correct; the white Silkie certainly looks to be a cockerel, while they gray Sizzle looks to be a pullet.

    I was thinking that, while the ladies are up in the coop he stays out side hanging out keeping an eye out. I was thinking he might be a roo because of his behaviors!
