    I have these two Silver Laced Wyandottes, both are 13 weeks old. I know the pictures are horrible, but as you can see, the SLW in the first pic has an obviously redder and larger comb and wattles than the SLW in the second pic.

    As you can see in the second pic, in the background, I have a third SLW, of the same age, I suspected it of being a rooster at 5 or 6 weeks old and it has been crowing since week 9, so I don't have any questions about it, haha! (If you look in my previous posts you can see my post about that SLW from several weeks ago)

    So what does everyone think about the first two, roo or hen???
