    Really it kind of depends on age, so how old are they? If I was blindly guessing, I'd say in the first picture, from what I've heard about the barring on boy BRs, I'd say you have two roos. However, the one on the left has no curvy feathers..... In the second pic, I'd say just the white one is a girl. And I have no idea on how to sex silkies, sorry.

    How old are they?
    The first pic, the one on the right looks like a roo and the one on the left looks like a pullet.
    2nd pic, the dark one might be a roo. Hard to see.
    Silkie, not sure.

    The first pic looks like both roos, the second pic roos but the white may be a hen,I'm thinking the silkie is a roo but it looks younger than 20 weeks, in your last pic the only hen I see is the brown girl at the back [​IMG]

    I don't know - your first two don't look much different from my BR hen, who is 19 weeks. Heard any crowing?

    The only female that I saw was the production red. The rest are males.

    The white one is a RSL male. You can clearly see its saddle feathers. The black one Im not sure of the breed, but with the shine of the feathers on its back and neck, would bet he is a male as well. The barred rocks (if pure barred rocks) are both males. Their plumage color screams cockerels.
