    Thanks for the help.

    ETA: Robin makes deep grunt/growl noises if that helps.

    Probably a pullet, but still hard to say.

    Silkies make weird noises. One way to differentiate between cockerels and pullets is that the weird noises cockerels make are lower in tone.

    I think your bird is a pullet though...
