I bought three new silkies today, they were supposed to be hens, but I think one is a cockerel. I don't know how old they are, but the lightest buff-colored is the one in question.

Very pretty colour!

I'm not convinced it's a hen. Can you get a closer picture of the top or back of its crest? How old is he/she?

I'm also thinking pullet. However, Silkies are notorious for being difficult to sex until they crow or lay.

Thank you. :)

I don't have a clue how old they are... They could be anywhere around 6 months to two years, really... The guy I bought them from bought them from someone else. He didn't share whom the chickens came from... I don't have any rear shots of her (crossing fingers), and I felt along her inner legs and didn't feel any indication of spurs coming in.
