    I have a GLW and since it is my first chick with a rose comb, I'm having a hard time deciding if boy or girl, so I'm hoping someone with more experience can help. It didn't show up as much in the pictures but the area immediately around the comb has been pink since the chick was about 2 weeks old...
    In the first pic, the chick is 2 1/6-3 weeks old:

    And in the second pic, the chick is 4-5 weeks old:

    You will have to post a comb pic, and the pics are too small

    You see how small his tail is and how big his feet are?

    I think yours is a girl.[​IMG]
