Anyone want to help me guess if these silkies are hens or Roos? I started with TEN silkies and one by one they've crowed! Now, 21 weeks later, I'm down to these two and hoping so much one of them is a hen. One is splash and one is white.

Just to clarify, there are only two silkies in question here. (There are three pics of the splash and two of the white)

I like to see a photo - face forward with crest held back to see the comb. Since you already had 8 cockerels, I hope nature will give you a break on the two remaining ones. Did you buy straight run?

Okay I got some close ups of the comb and I think it has streamers in its crest. It's a rooster, isn't it! I had very bad odds! Yes I bought ten straight run silkies from a feed store. I was told you can't buy silkie chicks sexed anywhere. I guess next year if a want a couple of hens I better buy 30 chicks! Lol

In the first pics, they both look like hens to me.

In the close ups, I'm not as sure

. But silkies aren't my thing, I'll let the more experienced folks chime in.
