    im going to say the white silkie is a little cockeral.
    and the buff silkie is a little pullet.
    the chick with the buff silkie is a black sumatra.
    but i could be wrong.
    the only one im sure of is the sumatra.
    :)

    The white one is a bit hard to tell, due to quality, but the buff is a female. I think pullet on the white so far though.

    My first thought was both are pullets. The white could go either way though. Watch for streamers to grow out the back of the crest - that's a sure sign of roo.
