My guess is all girls based on being between 11 and 13 weeks.

Any later photos?

As Caladenia mentioned, larger photos would also be more helpful, and it is quite OK to link to the image rather than thumbnail in this particular (What is This?) forum. :)

Some have suggested that for Silkies a side on full body pic as well as front on of head can be desirable for helping to tell us more. :)
