    I thought it was a cockerel but someone else said that they thought it was a pullet?
    Here is a video.

    His personality says boy to me. Thanks for looking.

    I think a boy. But I have had very little experience with silkies. If yours is a girl then so is mine that I thought was a cockerel. :)

    Cockerel! He's a cutie too!
  4. Looks pulletish to me. Does it have any streamers comming out? How old? Its either a pullet or a girly looking cockerel.

    It is around 5 months old. It seems smaller than the other males of the same age.

    I'm not sure I have my first silkies at 7 weeks old. My luck all 3 are boys. Mainly I wanted to tell you that you have an awesome avatar. How did you do that? I've noticed it before and wanted to comment on it

    Quote:Hi! yes my avatar. I used a program called jasc animation shop 3. I think it is free on internet by now. But what you do is, you import your desired picture for an avatar, but you import the same picture 5 or so times, now it will look like you have a film reel with 5 identical frames. Now you highlight all 5 frames and apply any sort of effect you want to turn any plain image into an animated .gif image like this one! Hope thats not too complicated [​IMG]
