    We hatched this silkie, Cyrus, just over 5 months ago and we still arent sure if its a boy or girl. We just got these polish chicks yesterday and Cyrus is taking up very well to them, so hopefully a pullet? Although, i have had silkie roosters that sit on eggs so its really just in there nature. (Weird chickens) Anyways, here are some pictures of Cyrus with the chicks.[​IMG][/IMG]

    On my phone so I can't see a close up but I think a girl. The comb doesn't look very big. Although silkie are an odd bird
    You are correct. . Only sure thing is if they lay. Then you know. :)

    I prefer bearded silkies, but she is an excellent non-bearded. Great crest and type.

    Ok we really think we have a pullet now. She hasnt laid any eggs or anything but she is actually setting on the chicks at night and freaks out when we take them away from her. Here she is with "her" chicks and our dog Amos. [​IMG]

    I believe pullet . I myself have 2 white silkies. Mine are about 2 months and the cockeral already has large wattles. So, I'm guessing pullet.
