    most welcome. Actually, there's also a silkie thread - you may wish to try there also (don't have the link, but use the search box and you should find it)


    Let me see if i can ask someone to take a look at the pic and help you out.

    Silkies are notoriously difficult to sex... however, that certainly looks suspiciously like a cockerel to me... how old is he?

    I'm still new to chickens and only have 2 silkies but the comb looks quite big so seems like it would be a rooster. If the new home washhappy to wait you could always keep it a bit longer but sounds like you're quite sure it is.
