    Yes these are the only 4 that I have! They are about 3 months old I think? maybe 4. The silky is 2 weeks older than the other 3. I did notice the larger crown thing on the top of the yellow and white one but wasn't sure if that would make it a rooster. That one is also the meanest one of the group.

    I just double checked. The 3 regular chickens are 13-14 weeks old, the silkie is about 17 weeks.

    No guarantee on the gender of the silkie, but your red and white bird is a cockerel, and the other two large fowl are pullets.

    I agree, that tan/white one is a rooster. Silky looks like a pullet to me.
