Any clues on these silkie babies? The first 6 were from a friend and are obviously a bit mixed so I feel like they're even harder to tell. They're 8 weeks old here and the last 2 are from a farm supply store so a bit more proper silkie but they're only 7 weeks old here. To me number 3 is an obvious boy... but I'm baffled with most of the others. I'm also missing one but I'm not able to take a picture of him/her atm. Will post that one when I can. Any ideas on these little ones?

3 and 8 are the only obvious cockerels so far

So you think 8 is an obvious cockerel? I wouldn't have picked that up with my untrained eye at all! Thanks for the input. I'm really hoping that the last two (from the farm supply) are a Male and female. I was wondering if you knew if their color would change at all? The woman from the farm supply said they were blues when I bought them but they don't seem to be anywhere near blue... in her defence they were awfully gray 4 days after they hatched when I picked them up... but now they seem white/yellow.

They look white, but I can't see their whole body.
