kinda looks like all 4 are cockerels, but it is still early silkies are notoriously hard to sex, but I'm sure you know that.

It's still a little early. The first may possibly be a male. Are they bearded or beardless? Some of the pictures are fuzzy and hard to tell.

I believe they are beardless, doesn't look like they have one. But I know its hard to tell the gender of silkies. Thanks

they are beardless, I'm going my the poof and posture, they are all standing nice and upright, and they don't have nice rounded poofs coming in, they look a bit crazy so that is why I thought male.

They appear to be non bearded, which means they'll have larger combs and wattles. They also appear to be hatchery quality, which means they'll likely never get a big crest. I can't see anything particular boyish about them, except for #1s larger wattles.
