    I had ordered 20 female day old chicksfrom the hatchery and I know the art is not perfect and suspect that I have at least one roo. I am having fun with my first group of chicks.

    This is a 3 week old SLW. The comb is very dark pink and has wattles which are coming in very well. Of the five this breed this is the only one devoloping like this. I live in town so can only have girls. Feedback would be appreciated. Any thoughts if this is a roo or a hen?

    Wow, I don't think there is any chance that one is female.
