    I posted a pic and a guess about this baby before, and I'm really feeling confident that I was right, and it's a male. I don't have another GLW to compare him to, but I do have old pics of my SLW from 3 years ago at this age, and he's feathering out WAY more slowly than she did, and just looks different.

    He's quite large compared to my other chicks, has long, very thick legs, and is just barely getting his tail feathers in at 20 days old. If any of these chicks are cockerels, this one is...

    I would have to agree...looks like a boy to me. The legs are thick and there is just something about the way he is standing. His wingbows are still fuzzy and his lack of tail feathers make me think boy!

    I agree the way he's holding himself looks roo like to me.
