    Not really sure on how to sex silkies. BIBBITT (closer) and BOPPITY (further) are 15 weeks

    I don't see anything screaming cockerel at this point, besides the fact that one is much larger than the other. Silkies are very hard to sex, so I would recommend reposting updated pics in a month or so to be sure.
