    I want to say around 6 weeks old.

    Hard to tell the difference. One has more of a beard.

    The last picture is a rooster, and the frizzle one with the red comb is a roo.

    Of the Silkies, I think I'm seeing 1 pullet and 1 roo, but hard to tell in those photos, and Silkies are hard to tell any way.

    *Usually* the girls are low to the ground, squattier, and more tear drop shaped. Boys are taller, lankier. Girls have pom poms while boys get the mowhawks. Any comb/wattle development younger will be male as girls have very little even as adults.

    My best guesses.
