The partridge silkie is a pullet, color is the giveaway.

I believe your white silkie is a cockerel based off of it's comb.
This is very helpful, thanks heaps. As I mentioned earlier, I'm new to silkies, and I'd love to know how colour correlates to gender. Are all partridge silkies female, or is it just a certain shade or something?

No, not all partridge silkies are females.

The breast feathers, & overall coloring is female specific.
