    10 weeks is far to young to sex Silkies with any accuracy. Need to me at least 4.5 to 5 months old.

    I'd say the first is female, second is male, but you really can't be positive with silkie's till they're much older. Third pic it's hard to identify because it's kinda blurry. Some single bird pics would be more helpful :)
