    HI All
    Been thinking this is a roo but wondering nowthat i look at it well.
    The comb hasn't grown up much I don't see it crow. neck feathers but not sure if its got neck hackles or just black color .... no saddle no siickle tail feathers...quiet and hangs out in the silkie pen.
    Not sure the age but i think others about its age have big combs hackles and saddles 4-5 months maybe more.

    Pullet. Should begin laying soon, if she isn't already.

    Looks like a pretty pullet to me. The feathers before the tail look rounded, not short, shiny, pointy hackle spaghetti feathers, lol.
