    The bird second from the left could be a cockerel, but I'm not sure. The white Silkie at the end is almost certainly a rooster. The others look like pullets, though.

    The two Polish look like pullets. But, the birds second from the left and the Silkie are cockerels (especially the Silkie).

    Thanks so much for your help! We've been reading everything we can to try to figure out who's what. The only chicken that acts different is the blue silkie (Murpy). It doesn't like to be held or bathed like the others and its constantly yapping! We thought maybe it was because he was the tiny baby of the bunch.
    The black silkie, Izzy loves to be held, falls asleep during her bath and mothers everyone and screams like a sick duck when seperated from the 2 tiny chicks. (we have no ducks dont know where the sound came from!) Our frizzle, Cricket doesn't like Izzy to sleep to close to the other chickens and cries if seperated from the 2 tiny chicks, to be held and loves a bath! Pringles the white silkie is the love of the bunch, loves a bath loves to be held, will sit on your lap all day! I thought since Murpy was so grumpy he was a male! my husband says I should know its a female! We don't really care who's what, love them all its just hard waiting! Thanks for the help!
