SLW can you confirm their genders? - Page 2

post #11 of 14

I think they are girls.  I understand your dilemma though! I have a 16 week old that I thought was a girl but then this tail feather thing just started to happen 3 days ago!!  Now I don't know!

LOL!  Its so hard to tell sometimes.  They will either start making eggs or noise.  Then you will know for sure.  So keep feeding them and see what comes out!

These 4 have had me going through ALOT of pictures of Slw hens and Roos to determine what gender they might be. My other four have beautiful rounded feathers on the backs with vey small combs and wattles with hardly any pink on them. These though have got me questioning. We are not allowed any roosters where I live but luckily my neighbours love the sound of a rooster crowing in the morning, one rooster is enough I don't want to take advantage. So if there's more I'm hoping to find them homes.

1, 2, and 3 are pullets. I'm not certain at all about #4. I thought that was the most likely to be a cockerel but that doesn't mean that it is. I just can't tell from the photos. I would wait until that one feathers in a little more and post a few more photos.
