    Verry pretty but if i'd guess I'd guess The 1st pictured is a pullet and the other a Pullet too. They are so young and silkies are so hard to sex Give it another Month and post new pictures.

    Very pretty,,, I like that hair do on the second one. I can guess the first a pullet and the second one? Sorry no help here

    The second one looks more tubular in the pic so it looks somewhat male, but that could be the pic too.

    Yes, it was windy and trying to get a picture was crazy. I have a someone who wants some and I have no clue if male or female. I was hoping the one with the big round top was a hen. And the one with the smaller thinner was a male. I don't want to give her all males or all females. I think she wants a couple of each. I will try again tomorrow and line them up and see what you think. Mine I can wait on the sexing but 6 are leaving so I was hoping to figure out something. Thanks for your input

    I am going to weigh in with definite one pullet and more than likely the second is too. Their shape seated from what I can see leads me to say pullet..
    They just do not look like my roos with the pointed spikes on the topknot

    Is there anything I need to show in the pictures that would help determine? More of a straight on shot? You tell me.
