The red ones look like pullets, if they are red sexlinks then they are definitely pullets. The silkie is a clear cockerel. And I usually can't tell with silkies.

Welcome to BYC! Please make yourself at home and we are here to help.

I agree with @junebuggena the red birds are pretty pullets and the silkie is a handsome cockerel. But silkies are very hard to sex and at this age, there is no guarantee until he either crows or lays an egg

Good luck with them! They are very lovely.

Ditto but, in this case I do think it is a silkie cockerel, he is non bearded and showing a lot of wattles at this age. If you can make generalizations about silkies at all - hard because they are so difficult to sex early) the girls usually have a narrow comb and the boys a wider one - they are called "walnut " combs and that's what males generally have. The only truly UGHLY part of a silkie, I always think they look like tumors.

This particular chick is somewhat narrow in the comb but, has lots of time to broaden.
