    Ok I know this is the 17374827 time this kind of post is posted but I would still love to see what you all think of our new silkie. I'm thinking pullet but not so sure with the way the crest looks. Any opinions would be so appreciated. Thank you all. Love this place already and it's only my second post.

    Silkies are tough, but with the shape of the crest and the size of the comb, I'd guess cockerel.

    I'd say about 70% sure it's a cockerel
