New to silkie bantams. TSC Chicks. Maybe two different colors? Heard a lot about "streamers." Are these streamers? Or is this how silkies look when they first start losing down in general? Pretty sure they may be too young to tell. Hoping an experienced Silkie Keeper out there can let me know what they think. Sex???

Out to pasture
MUCH too young to sex. They don't have streamers they are just starting to grow crests. They don't suddenly pop a full crest over night. Being hatchery birds its not unusual if they are lacking in the finer silky traits.

Polish breed males develop streamers.
