    I'd say cockerel. Those wattles and comb are pretty red and large. Usually, Silkies are difficult to sex, but I'm pretty certain that "it" is a cockerel.

    Welcome to BYC. Hard to tell from that picture and not knowing their age, but if quite young and all the same age - probably a cockerel.

    Thank you, don't think neighbours will be pleased, the front right is 11 week and the one on the left and back are 13 week.
