    I took it upon myself to take a few pictures of my 10 week old silkie chicks. Let me tell you, that was HARD! They kept wanting to run to my camera or my hands. I was able to get a few good shots, but man was this a pain! lol I still love them! Wish I knew which ones are girls or boys. I gotta wait another 5-10 weeks till I hear crowing or they lay eggs. But I have a good feeling the lightest chick is a rooster due to it's size. But I could be way off.

    This chick below is the lightest one and this one was harder to control. He/She kept walking to my daughter.

    Take your finger and run it over were their comb should be.... If its real flat feeling then more and likely it's a girl. Also look at the feet...males often have more boyish bigger feet, hehe. Also start looking for long Spiky feathers in the topknot for boys. Very cute babies
