    It's difficult to find out the sex of silkies. Typically, the males are more spunky and the females, not so much. The heads of the males have streamers coming off the top while the hens are more rounded. By the looks of the picture, the two top ones look like males and the bottom one looks more like a female.

    This is a picture of our buff silky roo, Suki.

    Suki is 19 weeks old now, and started crowing at 15 weeks. Hope this info helps.
