    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.

    She's the big sister of the flock.
