I think they are all around 3 weeks, much too yoing for the silkie I'm sure but I wanted to include it just in case anyone saw any clues :)

Silkie:

 

OEGB (I think?):

 

Quail D'anver:

 

Thanks everyone!

I have no clue about the Silkie, but I would say your OEGB is a cockerel and the D'Anver is a pullet. ☺ Cuties!

Thanks! I thought that might be the case. Is the color/size of the comb on the OEGB definitely indicating a male?

You're welcome! :) I think it's more the color that makes me think cockerel on the OEGB, since my last 9 cockerels had combs like that at that age.

They are WAY too young to sex accurately, especially the silkie. You, generally, can't determine a silkie's gender until it is at least 12 weeks old.

Anyone want to look at the D'Anver again? Here she/he is a few weeks later. She has some kind of splotchy color growing in, does this mean she might be a he or is it just because she is hachory quality?

I have no experience with D'Anvers, but it still looks like a pullet to me. :)
