    without knowing the age its really a guess but it looks like there maybe streamers coming from the crest which would mean cockerel but the comb is still fairly small which makes me think pullet

    Yeah, i think pullet too [​IMG] The puffball actually looks like a ballish kinda shape, as along as it is not pushed back its means it is a girlie. But if you want a definite answer there should be a silkie thread on here, so post on there..

    Congrats she is stunning!!! [​IMG]

    I actually did post on the silkie thread. I don't think anyone answered me.
