    Right has a bigger poof on the head, has little black wattles. Left has no wattles and a smaller poof and is less feathered out. Same age. They're around... 12 weeks old, I think?

    Another shot of the white one. I see no streamers but I'm not really experienced with silkies! The wattle is what's getting me thinking it's male...

    Dark brahma as far as I know... might be hard to tell with how my son is holding it, but boy or girl? Same age, about 12 weeks.

    The white silkie is a boy, the dark brahma a girl, and I don't know about the buff silkie. Good luck! [​IMG]

    The Brahma is a girl for sure. Dark Brahma roosters and hens are colored differently.

    I think both Silkies are males. The Brahma is a female.

    I am pretty sure that is a red silkie.​

    What cuties! I think one of each for the Slikies. Is the Dark Brahma a Bantum? --she's really tiny compared to my girl the same age:

    Your son is very cute and seems much more interested in getting photographed than my daughter [​IMG]
