    Can anyone please let me know their best guess if this is a pullet or cockerell ? He/she is about 4 months old. Thank you !

    Look like pullets currently, but with silkies you never know.

    I like to see them head first with crest pulled back to display entire comb - are these sourced from a hatchery?

    Here are 8 close up photos to see the comb. I'd really appreciate your input if you think pullet or cockrell. I was told he/she was about 4 mos. old. I got from a guy who has/breeds backyard silkies...not a hatchery. I appreciate any input. Thank you !
