    Do you have any comb pictures? #2 could be a rooster.

    Its a little young to tell for sure. However, #2 is looking roosterish. #1 looks like a pullet so far, in my opinion.

    Its too young to tell for sure--Silkies are often difficult to sex until they are 12-14 weeks of age; sometimes you won't know until they crow or lay an egg. But I agree with the previous two posters in that #2 is looking rooster-ish.
