I agree; young Silkies are notoriously difficult to sex even for experienced chicken owners. I would suggest re-posting their pics in about 2 months. By then their gender should be much more obvious.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts."
