    Too early to tell. The white one with black spots looks like a rooster to me.

    I agree -- the white one with black spots is decidedly roostery looking -- and the black one with white spots has a tinge of rooster about him... but I might be proved wrong there. In the second photo down --whatever that is, I Love the tiny white spots on the wings... it's all about the details.

    Cute chicks -- enjoy.

    The white Silkie and the white one with black spots are both definitely cockerels. Pullets.... Possibly the gray Silkie and the black one in the second picture. But Silkies are notoriously hard to sex (unless it's totally obvious) and if you say the rest of the birds are 3 weeks old, the black one may have a bit too much color in the comb.
