If they fight like roos does that mean they are?

    I have 2 black Silkies that bow, stare and fluff their neck feathers and fight just like Roos. Can anyone help me Sex them? The picture is clearer once you click it. Any help is appreciated. I love them and don't want to get rid of them if they aren't roos.

    Hello and :welcome.
    The black silkie nearest to the camera is a young rooster.
    The White silkie in the middle in a hen.
    Can I have a picture of the other black silkie?
    But from what I can see he looks like a young rooster too,
    Goodluck
    Fionn.

    Yes he looks like another rooster,
    The two black silkies are roosters
    And the white one is a young hen,
    Goodluck

    Thank you.
    It is just the years of breeding and showing silkies.
    Practice makes perfect!
    You will be able to learn some day,
    Just keep these pictures for comparison in the future and then
    You can look at the next silkie chicks you have and you will be able
    To tell if they are male/female.
    Goodluck and merry Christmas
    Fionn.
