SLW Gender? I have tried hard on my own!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have 4 SLW - and I have been unsure on their gender since day 1. I thought I would post two of them here and see if you could help me identify their gender - then perhaps I can figure out the other two. They are 11 weeks and hatchery birds. I have searched pullet/Cockrell photos of these guys for weeks and honestly they all seem to have features of both pullet and Cockrell so .....idunno.gif

This is "shrimp" for lack of a better name idenitfyer:








And this is "Painted":








Thank you in advance!

My BLRW at about the same age.  These guys are cockerels.  You can see their combs and wattles look much bigger than your youngsters.

 

One on the right is a pullet.  Her wattles are much smaller than the others.
