Trouble with a mixed bunch is they all develp at a different rate. However, here goes. 1. wait til it lays an egg or crows. 2&3 possibly F. 4 M. 5 M. 6 1M 1F (nearest camera). 7 possibly F. Do let us know what the outcome is.

Silkies, no chance until their at least 12-15 weeks. One of the hardest birds to sex. Although, around this age, I have a 100% record of ID with the ones I had.
