I have 5 silkie chickens 3 1/2 weeks old. 3 from My Pet Chicken who are "female" which are the smallest 3 (black,white,buff). I also have 2 that are straight runs from a Silkie breeder, the 2 biggest ones (blue grey,splash) were born 2 days before the other 3 chickens from my pet chicken. My question is if the Splash (white and grey one aka the biggest) one is a rooster. We can not have roosters in my city. I don't know if it's too soon to know what gender they are. Here are some pictures let me know if there's other pictures you need.

Silkies are very difficult to sex before 4-5 mos. of age and sometimes not till they crow or lay eggs. I like to see photos with head facing front & crest held back to show full extent of comb.
