12 week old Silver Lace Wyandotte - Hen or Rooster?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Still not sure whether my SLW is a hen or rooster.  "She's" a lot bigger than the other chicks who all arrived as day old chicks from hatchery.  Not crowing or trying to crow - actually fairly timid for her size. 
I've attached some photos taken this morning.  Any help is appreciated.
