    I was really hoping not but it looks like a male. I know these pics suck but I was in a rush this morning. Thanks everyone.

    I've said it once, and I'll say it again. Trying to sex that Silkie from those pics would be about as accurate as looking into Miss Cleos crystal ball.....

    Try for some better pictures so we can see the bird a little better.

    I agree, get the whole bird in the pic. good clear side shots are best as well as clear shots of the crest, but still tuff

    Its about 6-7 months. Im pretty sure its a roo becuz the comb and waddles are huge and my girls have next to nothing on their faces yet except the poof.

    Absolutely no way to tell from jthe photos--can't even really tell that it's partridge. While the photos are truly interesting and attractive from the standpoint of artwork or a photo of your pet, they do not give sufficient information to tell gender. Need whole body photos that are sufficiently light that all colours and patterns can be seen. A 6-7 month old non-bearded silkie pullet could easily have comb and wattles that size. Or not.
