    2) cockerel
    3) 2 cockerels and a pullet front & center
    4) pullet
    5) cockerel
    6) pullet
    7) pullet
    8) cockerel
    9) 2 cockerels

    Separate the ones with larger combs and the ones who have streamers growing off the back of their crests. Those are boys.

    i'm guessing 1, 4 and possibly 8 but i am pretty horrible at silkies. i hope someone else who is better can give you a better answer that they are more sure of. i wouldn't trust mine.
