    My pullets have a more slender comb such as this chick whereas my cockerel have very wide more developed combs. Therefore I say female.

    Wattles only show up on non-bearded silkies. Bearded ones will not have any. Please may we see a photo of bird facing forward with crest held or pulled back, to show full extent of comb?
