    Have 3 silkies and they all three scuffle like roosters. I know silkies are hard to sex but figured it was worth a shot to ask here. Want to find some more if they are all three the same sex.

    I know they're pet quality, but are they silkie mixes? That first bird (the one you're saying is fluffier/rounder) looks to have "regular" feathers rather than the furry looking silkied feathers. So I'm wondering if it's a cochin/silkie mix??? If they're mixes, it'll be harder to sex them, as their combs/wattles might be influenced by the other breed characteristics. How old are these birds???
