    IMG_3237.JPG I know this is a long shot since they're silkies.....but the one on the left has serious comb development going on, whereas my other two have none. They are only 4 weeks old, but could this possibly be a cockerel?

    That's the friendliest one too!
    Hoping the other two might be girls but we have a long time to wait still to know for sure.

    that is quite some comb for a youngster, unless it grows into it, I'd say cockerel

    Yes its possible but I wouldn't say for 100% certainty for several more weeks.
