    Got this 18 week old silkie cross buff Sussex not sure on the gender. Sold as a pullet but has rather large wattles and comb also posture. Can't get on the image but chek it out in the album wet birds.( It's the wet looking silkie:)

    I would say pullet, roo would have a bigger comb i think.

    The problem is its so young . If it was a pullet would it already have a comb and wattles. Normally silkie hens don't have wattles

    Can you get a close up of its head/comb area? The pictures were too far away to be able to really tell. If they aren't bearded silkies then, yes they can have wattles.
