8ish month old chicken. I thought I had all girls in the coop but now I'm starting to wonder based on this one's comb. I haven't witnessed laying or crowing but either is possible.

Ignore the chicken poop. It's been a crazy week and I'm out to scoop poop in a min.

??? May need a silkie expert for this one. Looks to have a some thicker tail and hackle feathers like a male. And the larger, more upright build of a male. But the small comb and crest of a female. And a male should have a large turquoise earlobe by this age as well. If I had to put a vote down I'd say its a pullet. But it wouldn't surprise me at all if it crowed tomorrow either. Sorry I'm not a lot of help in this one. You may try posting in the silkie thread as well.
