    Birds 1 and 2 look like pullets to me. You're going to need a much more expert opinion to evaluate 3 and 4. :)

    Got better shots of the tails?
    we have SLWs and they were sexed m/f the male has more coloring than the female she only has the lacing on her head and neck. She also feathered out alot sooner than he did! Did you happen to notice who feathered out first and fastest?

    Just by looking i say #1 is a pullet # 2 is a cockrel. Still i would like to see more pics.

    Very purdy burdies!

    I'm new at this but I'm thinking that 3 & 4 are not GLW's at all. Too me they look like EE's! :D
