Hello, new here and new to having chickens. We hatched our first batch 10 weeks ago and I am not 100% sure the sex of these chicks. Would love your opinions, thanks :)
I think the silkie is a cockerel, am I right?
we also have a ayam cemani that I’m not sure about either… also 10 weeks old. Not much of a comb yet… pullet?

Satin cockerel. I love his coloration.

The Ayam Cemani is a pullet.

Your Silkie is not a silkie. it does not have silkied feathers. Could be a “satin” but likely a silkie mix. Appears to be a cockerel.
The second bird appears to I just don’t know the differences yet so I call them all silkies 🤣🤣🤣 still learning!
