    And how can you tell the difference between a Silkie pullet or a cockerel? Thanks! (My Silkie is about three weeks so to early to tell)

    if it crows or lays an egg[​IMG] sorry not funny, males when they grow in their poof it will look crazy, a female will have a tamer more rounded poof, males obviously will have a bigger comb but that isn't always easy to see if you don't have a female as well to compare.
