    So i've posted many pictures of my questionable silkie who we deemed a girl. So she is molting really bad right now and is 27 weeks....She hasn't crowed hasn't laid and egg but today I noticed 2 very small tiny little pink wattles. She has no comb to speak of so is it still safe to assume she is still a she.

    [​IMG] Still getting new head feathers..molting really bad
    [​IMG] You can see the new little wattles coming in

    I *think* you have a rooster there - see the streamers on the back of the crest?

    My guess would also be a cockeral. It looks like longer hackle feathers also are coming in
