    Hey here are two pics of my silkies. I think one is a roo and other is a hen. My daughter think that both are hens. We are still new at this so what are your thoughts. Combs seem to be different as well as their tail feather, and I thought that was a sign. Thanks!! both are about 5 weeks old.

    The right-most one in the first image looks very much like a rooster. The left-most one defiantly more hen like in comparison.
