I had thought that my birds were both hens but now questioning myself. The yellow is 8 months, black 11 months. I know my pure breed silkies take a while to lay. I'm just dreading hearing a crow one morning. It's just been the last two weeks that the comb and wattles on the yellow grew and the black's comb but no wattles. The black one is a Silkie/cochin and the yellow is a silkie/buff orpington. First two pictures are from today.

Normally I don't even look at the silkie or silkie mixes, but even I'm pretty confident saying at those ages, those are both hens. If combs are just new getting red, eggs won't be far behind.
