    I would say #2 is a young roo but wouldn't bet money on it.

    How old are they? They looks around 8 to 10 weeks to me.

    Not an expert her, but I think roosters based on what mine look like. Body shape, comb and top feathers. See if the real experts agree. I look at all the silkie sex me threads and compare the photos and comments people make. It would be interesting to hear back after the fact if the guesses were correct. I posted 3 back in October when they were two months old and the experts were spot on. Rehousing one loud rooster this weekend!!!
    Good luck. Until they crow or lay an egg it is anyone's guess!!!
