    the white looks like a male due to the big single comb, if its got color its really a boy

    I am not even good at guessing Silkies...but...I agree white looks roo and black looks pullet.
    I don't think that Silkie has a single comb. They are not typical of Silkies.

    silkies do occasionally have single combs and those are the ones that stay pets and should not go into breeding pens.

    the both somewhat look like they have streamers i can see them sticking out on the black one but remember silkies are one of the harder breeds to sex

    Yes, I know they have single combs, too and I know they don't always have beards. I just didn't see a big single comb on the white bird. I don't have any Silkies that I am sure of the sex of. I onlyhave one that I think I might be right...so far! LOL!
