    5 weeks and a few days. He? has had this comb for a good week now, but the tips are starting to turn redish. It's a lot bigger than my other silkie, which are the same age / hatch.

    (That is NOT the coop in the picture, I just put them in it to get some fresh air during the day. They are still in a brooder)

    Yep, I'd say you've got a little cockerel.

    So my silkies are 6 weeks-if I took photos no, would someone be able to tell me if they're cockerels or pullets? I've always hear they take forever to sex.

    Chelsea, they usually do take forever to sex, but if you post a few pics, it may be possible to tell [​IMG]
