Is my white silkie a pullet or cockerel?

    I've been guessing female, but the way she dominates the one I'm positive is a rooster and how early her voice deepened and is exceedingly more vocal than the roo, who still has his peeping chick voice, I'm really starting to wonder. When there's treats to be had, she's first to eat and just bardges the roo out of the way or just snatches it from him. I know personality doesn't mean they're gonna be one gender or the other, and it could be because she was awfully close to the other roo who has died a while back, who had the similar personality and was the alpha, but yet again, I've never had a silkie hen have this big of a personality, usually they're kinda skittish.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    And I've had aggressive (as in assertive) Silkies. My best broodies are Silkie gals that take no fluff from anyone.
