    The first one and last one appear to have a slicked back look on the top of the head, but that can happen at first. even the girls sometimes look like that for a while. I don't really see any prominant combs on any of them in the pics, but pics can be deceiving. If they don't have a comb yet, I would thing pullets for most roos have a much more prominant comb by that age? But maybe they are just trying to fool you???

    Dragon is a boy
    Snake is a girl
    Chicken Little is a boy.

    The silkies crack me up. I can never get past the thought of that old Star Trek episode long enough to decipher the difference between the boys or girls.
