Hello. I have 2 silkies (about 8 weeks) and 1 EE about 4/5 weeks old. I'm pretty sure I have one roo silkie and one hen silkie but the EE is stumping me. I'm thinking hen because of something I read about red shoulders, but Idk. Can anyone please tell me what they think it is? Thank you!

Thought I'd update and see if anyone could tell now? I'm still confused on these two. Thanks!

@LadiesAndJaneI'm sorry, idk how that slippes my mind. Ok the one on the left is a rooster, he crows lol. I'm more confused about the one on the right. It doesn't crow but my son says he saw it's wing down the other day as if "dancing" i really feel like it's a hen though. And today the one on the right started biting me! I mean full on clamped down with it's beak and wouldn't let go! I have heard some hens get aggressive before they start laying eggs, then they calm down. Although, she still has a few months for that. I sure hope it's a female because otherwise I have to get rid of my other rooster. These 2 were our firsts we raised from babies.

Only males do the wing dance. At this age males and females should be pretty clear. If he is crowing, then also a male.
Please post photos of the one you are not sure of. In natural light with close ups of the comb area. Use one hand to push back the crest if needed.😊
