Hello. I know 7 and 8 weeks is a bit young, but I think I've figured out what most of them are (except a few that have me stumped). This is my 2nd year with silkies, but I've learned a bit and I enjoy helping other people with the genders of their silkies on here.

MC's photo is from 1 week ago because I thought I took pictures of him, but I ended up taking 4 pictures of Carlos. (The only way I can tell them apart is one is MC is non-bearded.)
The last 2 with no name is MC.

Here are my personal guesses:

Pookie - cockerel
Junior - cockerel
Loyd - pullet
Carlos - cockerel
Rosie - pullet
Oakley - no idea, leaning yards pullet
Night - no idea, leaning towards cockerel
Cloud - cockerel
Ducky - pullet
Chestnut - no idea
MC - cockerel

The non-silked ones are black silkie x isaballa bantam brahma mixes. Those ones I really can't figure out. They look like pullets, but act more dominant and stand tall.

Looking for more help with Oakley, Chestnut and Night.

Oakley, & Chestnut are pullets. Also, not silkies. Either Satins, or Silkie mixes.

The rest of your guesses looks correct.
 
That would make a Sex-linked cross then, females black skin, males white skinned.

I have examples of this crossing. But I may not have a picture of a particular one though.
Really? That's really interesting. Is it like that with anything crossed with a silkie? All 3 of my mixes have dark skin. All 3 have the same parents.

Only if the father is the Silkie, & mother is white skin type breed. The opposite crossing would result in males, & females with black, or white skin.
