They are Silkies and there seems to be Roosters in the mix

I gave my new neighbor 5 silkie chicks. Wow what a way to welcome a new neighbor to the neighborhood. These chicks were given them me along with their surrogate mama hen. But we meaning me, or the other two neighbors do not keep chicks due to neighborhood requirements, NO ROOSTERS.
And it looks to be that I see a strong possibility of 3 Roosters in this mix. I see some standing right up and small wing feathers where the two hens are squatty and have full wing feathers. Give the pics a look and tell me what you see? I will help her find a home for the roosters, so if you are interested, let me know. Sharpsburg 30277

No way to tell this young other than DNA testing. Cockerels will not crow for several months usually, so you and your neighbor have time to figure it out. You can try posting individual photos I would say earliest around 10 weeks of age, even then may very well be too early. 😊
On the other hand, some of these littles look like mixes, so may be able to tell a little earlier.
