Don't know if Roos or Hens
Only one has a comb and it acts like a rooster.Silkies are difficult because they can take a long time to mature. There's nothing screaming "boy" at the moment. I had one with a slicked back top knot like yours and it was a girl so don't worry about that. I know it's difficult not knowing!
All have black legs and 5 toesI would like to see good photos of them facing forward with crest (feathers) pulled back to display full extent of comb.
I notice none of the three have black beaks, What color are their legs & feet? How many toes?. Are these hatchery birds or from a breeder?
Like the others mentioned, it does look like the first two are cockerels - hope the last one is a pullet.
