    No idea about the last 4. Guessing that 1,2,3,4, possible 5 are pullets. #6, I think is a boy!

    5 is male.

    6 may be male, hard to tell from the pic.

    I think 7 is male, that's a lot of comb.

    No one else is screaming cockerel right now. But silkies are hard to sex until they're older, so maybe post again around 3 months.
