Help! silkie chick sexing

Wait until they crow or lay an egg...

Seriously though, most Silkies are super hard to sex and you can't identify them until they're a few months old. Cockerels will get feathers that stick out further on the back of their crests (streamers), giving their 'do a messier look. Pullets have nice round crests. The boys will also develop larger combs. Sometimes you do get an obvious rooster that easily picked out early on, but not usually.
