I'm not sure. Silkies are very difficult to tell gender on. For now, I'm leaning towards pullet.
How old is it? I'm leaning towards cockerel.
My silkie is about 4 1/2 months old. Im not sure how to directly reply to a post yet.
I'm still thinking pullet. Male Silkies tend to have larger comb and wattles.
However, sometimes you don't know a Silkie's gender until it either crows or lays!
I'd say pullet, but how does she act? Is she sweet and dumb? (my pullet is) Or is he/she aggressive (My rooster is).
I say its too young to sex, but if I had to guess, I'd say cockerel. FWIW- bearded Silkie males are NOT supposed to have large combs or wattles. Bearding suppresses them, and yours is bearded. With the wattle size and color, sure makes me think boy...
I have a bearded white silkie who I am almost sure is a male. He is younger than this silkie. He has a huge dark purple comb and wattles. This is definitely a hen.
