I am FAR from an expert but I have been paying close attention to any and all threads asking about sexing silkies, for a couple of months now, and according to all I've seen I agree with the others, that you're right on all except that last one looks like a girl. They're all very pretty!

its soo hard isnt it

i brought a marked up hen that had big wattles we are still waiting for eggs! but she isnt a true silkie as she has white skin and no 5th toe but she looks good just not close up lol

the other one is 17 weeks and has a back combed look about him but as far as wattles they are small and his nose comb isnt large either soo we will just have to wait and this one follows us around the garden hes lovely.

I think you have it right. The boys tend to be much leggier and a little later in looking like a cute Silkie. They are cute.
