Could I please have your opinions on the gender of this Silkie? I go back and forth from week to week. Yvonne is 6 months old.
No crowing or roo behaviors, but she/he has huge feet, thick legs and suspicious hackle feathers. On the other hand, the crest is large and round, as is the tail. Thoughts?

Cockerel, I think. None of my hens have combs that large, where they push up into the crest. And, in the very first picture, it looks like theres some streamers popping off the back of its crest. Girls don't get streamers...

Good breeder quality boys are usually very feminine. With big crests and smaller combs and wattles, but yours still has a bigger comb than any of my hens!
