Hi! I hope ya’ll aren’t tired of silkie genders yet haha. This is my first and only silkie, so I’m not super familiar with them other than what I’ve read here. I know that they’re difficult to sex & I likely won’t find out until crowing/egg laying. I don’t need to find out now, but I’m just curious as to what more experienced people think!
I’ve raised cockerels before and right off the bat I thought this one was a pullet... very timid, always stayed low to the ground, let its hatch-mate (cockrel) pick out food for it. It’s now 9/10 weeks old and I’m noticing some streamers? Which would indicate cockerel? Let me know what you think :)

On the fence with this one. Not convinced those are streamers and the comb is fairly flat. You will need a bit more time. He/she is very cute!😊
