    I have 2 white silkies, the bigger one is 7 weeks, the smaller one 5 weeks.
    We think bigger one is roo? smaller one pullet?
    Any ideas?

    The first one looks like a pullet, maybe a Roo for the second, but with Silkies it is so hard to tell.

    It's awfully young to attempt sexing silkies. Four to five months is a much better age. These are just guesses, but the first looks like it could be a pullet, the last photo with so much comb may be a male.
