I have 2 almost 6 month old silkies. One is definitely a cockerel. First picture is my boy. The other pictures are of who I thought was a pullet but is displaying rooster traits. Her/his comb, wattles, coloring,tail feathers look different than my cockerel though. They came from the same cage of chicks from a feed store at the same time. I’m super new to chickens and I’m still learning. Thank you!

Both 100% cockerels.

20 week old show stock silkie no crow flat comb keeps mostly a pullet posture very docile only makes soft clucking sounds like my other pullets. any guess? the splash in the back is 24 week old cockerel.

I'm sorry but I can't see it clearly in these pictures.
