    Silkies (prominent breed of the sizzle) are pretty hard to sex...I don't know who to call for on this and I'm not very familiar with silkies but here's what I think:
    1 female
    2 female
    3 possible male, sketchy though..

    Cute babies! Best of luck with them!!:thumbsup

    How old are they? 1 and 2 look like pullets and 3 is definitely a cockerel

    Silkies are very difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age. Combs are not the same type, Cochins usually get combs up early
