    I have got this little guy as a chick and was hoping he was a she but now im having doubts because of comb size and it appears that he has roo tail feathers. Can anyone tell me if its a cockerel or a pullet? Oh and even in Silkies only the males have roo tail feathers correct?

    It's a cockerel. George M. has awesome Silkies in your area. But, if you were to buy from him, I would def. also buy a roo from him. The roo's can have more feathering in the tail, the hens have more of a fluff.
