    It's got a good sized comb for 6 weeks old, I'd guess cockerel based on that. Definitely hold onto it though. They're so hard to sex, some of my hens have short, wide combs like that, so you never know! Post again in a few weeks [​IMG]

    I can't tell, silkies are tricky to sex. Looking rooster-ish, but you never know.

    3x kind of looking Cockerel, don't know the breed but have read that the Pullets have rounded puffs, like a "ball of cotton", while the Cockerels are more like a "mohawk"! Silkies are harder to sex & I think they're awfully cute but the 5ht toe creeps me out. Trying to get over that :(
