My favorite chick in the entire flock is my sweet Silkie, name Little Bo Peep. Do you think Bo is a roo or pullet. I think I see the development of a walnut comb. Please help if you can. Bo is about a month old.

It looks like it's a cockerel. But with silkies they need to be a couple months before you can really know for sure

Thank you for your input. It loves being held, but is aggressive with the other birds. It pecked our Polish's back bare, and the neck of our Salmon faverolle was raw. It's currently separated in the brooder box, with a piece of window screening so it can see the other chicks, but not have physical contact.

What other characteristics should I keep an eve out for?
