EARLY SLW & GLW Gender Question

Thread Starter 
GLW
I'm guessing Roo just because his comb is already having a red hue and he's so young!

Next up...a side by side of my SLW's
They are also 2 1/2 weeks old and one comb is more developed than the other.
And one has a pinkish hue to the comb. Because of their age I only took head shots as body wouldn't say much right now.

Really, really early to say much.

 

The pinkish color could mean something, or not, right now. I've had some Wyandotte mixes get peachy early, but were pullets.

 

Ditto for the others...a bit fleshy, but still really early.

 

It may well be you have 2 roos and a pullet, and keep watching to see if they continue to develop as such, but they may not.

Thanks for your comment! I realized I was really ridiculously early asking such a question. I just was noticing these differences and was getting worried. I'll repost here in 3 or 4 weeks.

I would guess cockerel, but it really is too young to be sure.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

Nature's first green is gold,

Her hardest hue to hold.

Her early leaf's a flower

But only so an hour.

Then leaf subsides to leaf.

So Eden sank to grief,

So dawn goes down to day.

Nothing gold can stay. --Robert Frost
