    Silkies are very hard to sex so you'll probably be waiting awhile to figure them all out. However I would say the third one down is a rooster and probably the last one too. They both have single combs which is not the standard for silkies so while it makes them easier to sex, it also indicates that they might be mixes or just really poor quality ones from a hatchery.
