    Since they are silkie mixes, it will be easier to tell than if they were pure silkies. 5 weeks it still a little young to tell though. At around 3 months to 4 months old you should start seeing saddle feathers coming in on the roosters, they should also have a bigger comb by then too. Now if you start to see a different color show up on the wings or back, that could mean a rooster also, as roosters get all the pretty colors. If you post back here in a few weeks we can help you. Good luck
