    Your Silkies are too young to sex at this age. Post pictures when they are 12-14 weeks old.

    My silkie seems to be around 6 weeks (according to where I bought them) and I feel like my silkies seem bigger. But! My white silkie already seems like it's a rooster I wish I could keep roosters here but I can't. Anyways here's a picture of my Rex for reference...? He hasn't crowed but he is pecking at the others constantly, and always challenging another chick that I feel might be rooster also because of it. Here's pictures of my white silkie named Rex. One when he's young then 3 weeks later.

    We first named it Rexie... Then changed it to Rex because I feel it's a roo.
