I'm leaning towards cockerel right now. 13.5 weeks old, still just peeping. What do you think?

I have no experience sexing Silkies. Just wanted to say WOW, that's a beautiful bird!
Thanks
Her name is Daffodil. If she ends up being a rooster we'll change the name to Dill. The kids just love her, she's such a funny little thing.

I want to say pullet BUT, nagging suspicion it is a cockerel. So difficult to sex silkies. I will say it is one the prettiest silkies I have seen in a long time.
Just gorgeous bird.

I'm leaning towards cockerel at this point. The comb seems awfully large for a pullet at that age. I would repost pics in another month or so to tell for sure.

Thanks :) I am hoping it's a girl, but if it's a cockerel, oh well. :)
