    Hi, I have four silkies, 2 about 12 weeks, 2 about 16 weeks. I'd be very glad if anyone could help with genders? I've uploaded a few photos hoping they will help. The first two sets of pics are a buff and a light grey, the second set is a white and a dark grey which are the older two. Thank you very much in advance.

    Really need to see them in standing natural profile, and also head forward with crest held back to display entire comb. Silkies are very difficult to sex, sometimes you can' t tell till they crow or lay eggs.
