    Theyre only three months old. I know the for sure way is to wait for an egg or crow. But i figured i would ask just for fun. Thanks

    I'm not too good at sexing silkies but if i were to hazard a guess I'd say that the top is a hen and the bottom is a rooster

    Thanks for guessing.... I was hoping it was the white who was a roo and the buff was a hen but all well. Neither one has any comb or wattles so my luck theyre probably both hens when i really wanted a roo. Lol
