    Well, I'm not the greatest at this, but I'll take a shot at it. I usually compare my chicks to their siblings of the same breed and age and have so far done fairly good at it.
    1st is a pullet
    2nd has me thinking roo, but I'm not entirely sure. I've seen early bloomer pullets that looked like that
    3rd Silkies are beyond me! Sorry.
    4th looks roo

    BUT... I personally wouldn't get rid of any of them until they crow because then you really know for sure.
    Now let the real experts take over. :D

    To me they currently all look like pullets. Give it a few more weeks to be sure. The silkie may take longer.

    How old are they? As far as I can tell no one is showing obvious signs a being cockerels yet but I think they maybe to young to say for sure.
