    I'm not an expert on silkies (don't have any) but it looks to me like someone is trying to get rid of some dudes. A couple of them look to have spiky crests, which would indicate boys.

    The only thing I can tell from the picture is they are not very good quality, or even 100% silkies, regardless of sex. My feed store silkies are much more fluffy at half the size.
