    I know it is still too early to be sure at 8 weeks. That said, what do you all think now?

    Possible roo. Need to see it legs and tail feathers better

    I am going to guess a roo...here is one of my GLW hens @ 18 weeks (both girls look like this)

    Looks like a girl to me. She's colored like a girl. I have two GLW, one with a straight comb like yours. They both had redder combs earlier than the other hens.

    I don't have an 8 week picture, but here are mine at 7 weeks.

    lovinlife, are your two girls or boys? This was Vic at 7 weeks. (her feet show up better CoyoteMagic)

    And here is a better side view (though the color isn't as accurate) - this one was taken today, also:

    The comb and wattles have me concerned (and the big feet). I suppose I'll have to wait for an egg or a crow.

    Hard to say. My hens all had pretty pronounced combs and I was worried for awhile, but they're all definitely girls.

    I'm going to say pullet. When I posted pics of mine everyone said roo but they are almost 17 weeks now and still look the same as yours only their combs and wattles are beginning to turn red.
