Can't tell is it's a hen or Roo. starting to get a rather noticeable comb...a straight one at that! & she came from a flock of totally correct Silkies, lol.

Looks like a pullet to me... how old?

Any chance for a head-on shot?

There are two things that make me think this is a rooster: The crest has spikey feathers of varying length. A female should have a nice even pom-pom. The body shape looks to be that of a rooster.

Thank you all very much for the help. I was thinking it probably was a roo because of the big comb but wanted to double check as a couple of my hens have kinda big combs too! Thanks!
