    I think you are right about all of them judging by the combs. Which is what you are judging by right? Even though with Silkies, sometimes it's impossible to tell until they crow or lay. Besides the comb, roosters will have streamer feathers on their crests and long thin hackle feathers, like a cape

    i find that putting the hackle feathers over some sort of colored cloth with just a few seems to do the trick with the sexing of silkies if they havent laid or crowed yet. i would wait till they are at least 15 weeks though.
