    Silky and ? for sure. Not certain what the ? might be, but he looks like the silky crosses that our TSC was selling this year. They were all evidently crossbreds.

    The silkie traits are so dominant it can be pretty hard to tell what they're mixed with. I would say not Cochin in this case, but that's about all I got from the pic and information.

    Her? I have my doubts about that. Looks like the typical pet/hatchery quality Silkie cockerel to me.

    I agree, that looks like a cockerel. How old is it?

    I was thinking there is a high probability that the bird is a cockerel.
