I've got two silkies that are almost 4 months old now. I'm suspecting that the light colored one is a male and the darker brown MIGHT be a pullet. I've never had silkies before so I'm unfamiliar with their development. Although one is growing a comb already so like I said, I do think it's a he rather than a she.

I've also got a polish silkie mix that I'm not quite sure about. I've had two other polish cockerels that were quite obvious early on but this one is stumping me. "She" is about 4 to 5 months old. No comb or wattles or crowing, but she looks almost exactly like my polish roosters did. So I'm not sure 😭

Lighter partridgey colored one is a cockerel.
Black one next to him is not a silkie, but likely a mix, looks to be a pullet.
Darker brown partridge one is a pullet.
"Polkie" is a pullet but I honestly do not see much silkie in this bird. 🥰
