    White looks like a pullet. The top one could be a roo, but I'm not the best when it comes to silkies.

    Could you get better pictures of their faces? But for now I agree with the post above.

    Much clearer photos are needed, in natural lighting.

    Does it matter? I heard the roosters are just as gentle

    Well it matters to me. I like to be able to say he or she when referring to a bird, roosters don't lay eggs and my silkie rooster is the nastiest one out of the 15 that I have.
