    Does it have an upright stance, and may you post a picture of its comb? It doesn't look like he/she has any streamers yet.

    Hmm.. is he/she always on watch? Like more on alert than the other Silkies? Is he/she more social?

    I'd say a pullet, then. There is not much of a "walnut" like comb and she doesn't have streamers. Cockerels have an upright stance and this pullet doesn't. I could be wrong though, since he/she is only 2 months old. You will really be able to tell what gender he/she is when he/she is 4 months old, but for now I'm going with pullet.
