What about this one do you think this is a hen or a ROO?
The roos have a slightly different coloration than the girls. Is it a pure SLW or a cross? Doesn't look like my SLW girls at all. I'd say it's a cockerel. I think I see pointy saddle feathers.
It is suppose to be a pure SLW. But I don't know. Bought them from a guy locally he had 25 birds in each breed so I would guess he got them from a hatchery. They were suppose to be pullets leave it to me to pick all the roos.
Sorry...yep...looks like a cockerel.
I think the saddle feathers are getting pointy so that would be a cockeral right
Here's my SLW roo when he was a couple of months old.
Here he is more recently, at about 6 months old.
Hope this helps!
BTW, you're sure your bird is 5 MONTHS old?
Cockerel, and looks younger than 5 months.
Yeah, that was bugging me about the bird's age. Seems younger than five months.
I could be a little off on the age. I know he is older than the chicks I bought and they are 3 months. The person I got them from said they were 4 weeks but I don't know what they really were and I have had them 3 or 4 weeks before my hatchery birds came in. so for sure 4 months maybe not 5?? He is nothing compared to the picture below of the 6 month old. So age, sex both could be wrong.
I think the earlobe color looks wrong to be a pure wyandotte
Its comb and wattles look pullet-ish to me, if it's really 5 months old.
