    Scout - pullet (for now) [​IMG]
    Prim - Pullet
    Katniss - suspected cockerel (?) may be too early to tell though.
    Hermione - Cockerel - [​IMG] Just kidding!

    Thank you [​IMG] I was feeling the same - although I did a double take when you said Hermione was a cockerel, lol!! I knew better but it took me a sec [​IMG]

    What do I look for in the SLW?

    Umm.. I had 7 SLWs a few years ago and 3-4 of them had red and big combs/waddles early, but they were still pullets. What I look for is extra white for SLWs. It's not fool proof, but that is what I am basing my thoughts on. In your first picture, I see some odd white markings coming over 'his' body. My hens were still pretty dark at this age. But, like I said, I *SUSPECT* cockerel. I am not 100% sure.
