    I just recently bought a silkie pullet yesterday but I’m not sure if she really is a pullet or if it might be cockerel. I’m also wondering around what age she might be?

    Welcome to BYC. Age would help - posture looks masculine, but could just be a gawky pullet.

    Pullet
    Probably around 16-18 weeks old. It doesn't look like she's laying yet ..

    looks like a pullet to me but, just the same could you get new photos of her facing forward with crest pulled or held back to show full extent of comb. Thank you
