    [​IMG][​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]I got this Silkie from a woman's family farm. She said it was a girl. I'm hoping. What do you think. She/he is 10 weeks

    Silkies can be tough, but I think that she is a pullet.

    I see three pictures.

    I have no idea on gender. Silkies are mysteries to me. I was reading this hoping to figure out if my silkie is pullet or cockerel.

    Looks like a female due to the tiny comb. The males tend to get more of a pronounced comb by about 10 weeks old (though some develop sooner, some develop later).
