So classic Silkie guessing game. I have thought this white bird was a cockerel from the beginning, but at six months no crowing and a flat comb. It also holds it's body pretty low, just like the bird I think is is pullet. It's at the top of the pecking order.

No hard feathers in the tail and it's pretty rounded.

This one I think is a pullet, it's the only bird with comb development, but has a nice round crest and typical posture and behavior of a female. Also 6 months old so possibly nearing laying age (I hope 🤞)

Next to the white one.

And if anyone knows if my odd emu looking bird on the far left has any chance of being a pullet with that gold around the neck and breast? Flat, single comb, frizzled, silked, terrified of everything. As soon as I saw that color I assumed cockerel.
