    I have 2 EE (aracuanas?), 2 BS (bantam silkies), 1 SLW (Silver Laced Wyandotte), and 1 BO (Buff Orpington) They are all about 5-7 weeks old. I am really curious about the SLW because her face is so black. I am just a beginner so please help!

    those wattles look a bit red and maybe a bit too developed for that age, too. Could be a roo.

    I don't have any experience with those breeds other than silkies. Silkies are hard to sex until they are older , although Sweet looks like how my roos usually feather in.
    Shaniqua does have pretty red wattles, I would be suspicious she is a he but I'm sure someone who knows the breed will chime in.

    Thanks for the help! I am still hoping for all girls though! Wish me luck! If you have any more thoughts just put them down!

    I cannot offer a guess on your silkies -- but the others all look like pullets to me.
