    This silkie is 17 weeks today. So if the comb is red it will be a roo, because i thought it was just if it was wide and tall..which this one is wide not redd? Does anyone know?

    ALSO, it does have waddles they are hid though by the beard if you needed to know?


    Male or Female?

    i didnt see that you posted this bird was 17 weeks. you'll be finding out if he's not crowing... you should see an egg soon.

    I am going to guess girl. The head feathers are pretty round, and the comb, while a bit wide, is fairly flat and dark like a girl, not reddish at all. I have a girl - 1 yr old, who looks almost exactly like that.

    I vote pullet. My Mushroom is a bearded Silkie, and his comb and wattles are huge. He's about the same age as yours.

    My guess is hen as well. My silkies are 14 weeks and the roos have wattles, those funky Silkie combs and are crowing (or trying to at least!).
