    I'm not very good with silkies as I have never had one:p.But my guess is pullet as nothing really screams rooster right now but like I said not good with silkies.

  6. I think it's a pullet, but I'm not a silkie expert.

    I think that you have a pullet. Her crest is round and puffy and her comb is small, both of which are characteristics of a pullet Silkie.

    Looks like a pullet, as her crest is round, her stance is short, and her comb/wattles are small (all are pullet Silkie characteristics). But Silkies are known for being extremely difficult to sex, so you may not know until she either crows or lays an egg.

    I agree it does look like a pullet! I have 3 silkie girls and one roo and that doesn't look like my roo
