2 of them have slightly bigger combs, does that help?
I'm still trying to see if they have wattles yet.

Lavender color actually :p
Ah, I stand corrected! ;) Lighting is tricky. :D

Out of my 12 Silkies, it seemed most often the cockerels display much wider, more rounded combs at a young age. Not implying that this is a reliable method of determining Silkie gender in the least, but it's what I've noticed so far. :)

Just for the sake of clarity, they're both much older now, and I'm aware of their genders. :D
