    Heres my guesses lol, I'm really bad at telling silkie gender but here goes:
    #1 pullet
    #2 roo??? this ones hard
    #3 roo
    #4 pullet
    #5 pullet??? another hard one lol
    #6 looks like maybe one of each or both pullets, not quite sure

    Without a full body shot where you can see the stance of the bird, it can be hard to tell. Can you post better pics of each bird?

    1 pullet
    2 cockerel
    3 cockerel
    4 pullet
    5 pullet
    6 pullets

    Pullet (possibly)
    cockerel
    cockerel
    pullet
    pullet
    pullets

    The first one and the third one would be easier to see a side view of the bird, especially the head so we can look for streamers.
