    I have 2 GLW chicks approximately 5 weeks old. One is clearly a roo. We are trying to figure out if this chick is also a boy. They both have really thick legs and are some of my bravest chicks, but they are also the oldest. This chick in question's comb is not as red and has a point coming in at the top whereas the definite roo's comb is super red, flat and wide. The known roo has red wattles starting and this one doesn't yet. The chick wasn't very interested in picture taking. It's my least-cooperative chick of the bunch. Thanks for your input!

    Here's a body shot:

    The two GLW together. The one on the right is definitely a rooster. I can even see that as a newbie!! [​IMG]

    I agree that the one on the right is a cockrell with his bright red comb but the one on the left most certainly looks like a pullet in my opinion.

    Thanks everyone! They are my least friendly chicks so I'm not too sad if they are both roos. I will need to trim down my flock so having some be roos makes that decision easier!!

    Thanks again!!

    They ended up being one pullet and one cockerel. I rehomed them as a pair since they were such buddies. Thanks for your input!!
