    This is Faux. I still have NO clue what sex he/she is. He's about 4 months now. No eggs, no crowing. It has been suggested that he is a she but I'd like to know for sure. I want to ad one or 2 more to my flock but I need to know what I have first. THANKS.

    Silkies can certainly still out fox you at this age, but I think you have a girl. I don't see any comb development, but wait for 2 more months & then repost. [​IMG]

    The small pics don't make it easy---but I'm gonna guess it's a pullet

    I think she's a pullet. Very small comb for that to be a rooster at that age. At about 14 weeks our Silkie roo was crowing his head off repeatedly, while flapping his wings wildly. It was very cute, but I think you've got a girl.

    LOL...I didn't know that for the longest time and would get frustrated by people posting such small pics!
