That one's a bit of a toughy! How old is it?

First thought was hen looking at the feathers but that comb is a bit large for a hen. However, I've had older silkie hens with larger combs before.

The one in the back of the first pic is my beardless blue silkie roo who is 4 months old. The 6 month old paint is the the one that I'm unsure about because of her comb but, a couple people I asked locally who breed silkies is telling me she is a pullet.

Sure looks like a boy to me. None of my mature hens have a comb that size and the wattles wouldn't get big because bearding suppresses them.
