Hello, I have four silkie kids that are about 4 months old now. I am hoping there might be some help in sexing them. In the silly hope of them all being girls, i've named them Blair, Jo, Natalie, and Tootie. I've labeled the images with their names to make identifying them a little easier.

Thanks!

They look like my pullet silkies do, I cannot tell very well but do they seem to be developing any combs or wattles? Silkies can be very hard to tell.
There is NOTHING in terms of combs or wattles. A couple of them have some unusual feathers on their head that make their 'helmet' less uniform, but that's the only distinguishing thing happening.

It helps if the all the crest feathers are wet so that you can see the entire comb...but 4 months is still on the younger side for sexing Silkies.
