    Ok, I've read a lot about how to tell hens and roosters apart, but I'd like some input anyway. I'm pretty sure the following Silkie's are all roosters, but tell me what you think! (Sorry about the wet crests.)

    In this picture the two white Silkie's are the ones in question.
    Thanks!

    They look like roos to me. If the crests have longer spikes in them when they are not wet then they are boys. Girls have nice rounded crests without any spikes sticking out.

    The crests don't look very rounded when they are dry, so I'm pretty confident they are roosters. (They're eating wet grass so much I have a very hard time getting pictures when they're dry!) Thanks for the input!
