Help! New to chicken raising and I'm trying to sex my nine week old silkies. I have a feeling they might all be roosters...which would be most unfortunate. The two whites are larger than the two buffs. One white has a red comb and waddle and the other has black. Both buffs have black. All help is appreciated thank you!

I tried to get as many angles as possible to help with different aspects like their stance and feathers. One buff was being very shy so not many good pics of it. There are four chicks in total. Thanks again!---

Both of the Whites have pretty well developed combs so I'd say both cockerels. The Buffs aren't showing as well yet but neither one is really screaming rooster, so I'd say post updated photos in a few weeks.

Thank you, I agree about the whites and I'm hopeful with the buffs but I suspect at least one is a roo
