Hi. I am new to chickens, and got these silkie chicks from someone who decided they didn't want their Easter chicks anymore. I am clueless. Any guesses on which are boys and which are girls? I appreciate ANY guesses, comments, insight, etc. Thanks!

It looks like you have 4 boys there! The developed combs on two are a giveaway, and the other two have back-slanting crest fluff. Hope you're okay with someone having given you boys. They must have known.

Well, I was hopin for a least a couple of girls.
But, my philosophy is the more the merrier! Guess i'll have to locate some fo sure girls to keep them company!
Any advice on how to be sure'er bout what i'm getting? I am reading ALOT on here that even ordering from a hatchery and specifying girls doesn't mean much. Oh well.

Silkies are very hard to sex and many people will just tell you to wait and see who lays an egg and who crows to tell.
I have 2 silkies and 1 mutt silkie, im sure the mutt is a roo but I am still clueless on the silkies and they are about 2/3 months old
