I have one Serama, and four silkies.

Am I right in thinking, the Serama is male, three black silkies are possibly male, ... almost maybe convinced that one black is female, and the white I'm also thinking female? I know it's hard to tell with silkies, they are 5-6 weeks I believe, I don't have the exact dates with me.

I need to rehome, all but one rooster, and I'm hoping I can figure out which is which, I've included photos, sorry they are nothing great or special and excuse the poop, you wouldn't believe how often I clean their pen 🙈

Its their indoor coop space until they go safely outside. Thank you for any help you can give.

Three males/If they are, are much larger than the one black I believe looks female- but the female looking one did have a leg issue when born and fortunately we sorted it out., I don't know if that effects anything at all.

It looks like one of your silkies may have a single comb meaning it cannot be sexed as a normal silkie, but I would agree besides that one that the other two blacks and white are most likely cockerels but I would wait to be sure once they age up more :) 5-6 weeks is a little young. Your serama does appear to be a cockerel, sorry :'(

Thank you, if the Serama is the cockeral, sadly I'll have to find new homes for the others as we can only have one cockeral, and alas, the Serama has a nightmare hatch rate so its been a nightmare to get him, he's my favourite too, so maybe I'll be okay with that. My mini white I was hoping to keep too but beggers can't be choosers I guess.
