Never had them before...chick is 6 weeks
Too young to sex.
Unfortunately they are very hard to sex and sometimes you can't tell until they crow or lay an egg. Yours however looks to have a single come, which if this is the case will make it easier - and also means it's either a mix with a lot of silkie in it or just a lower quality bird. With the single comb growth and the start of development on the wattles this young I would tentatively lean towards it being a cockerel, but it really is very young to sex and you should take that with a grain of salt.
agree, I was thinking definite male by the size of the comb then enlarged the photo to see it is a single comb instead of walnut. If it's a hatchery bird, they are generally far off from looking like a good silkie. Bad combs and wrong color are often the most common faults.
Interesting. He moves like a male. I got two from tractor supply company. The second one has a walnut comb. I will post pics of that one too...
