    I posted pics of Hotwing (dark BLRW) and Nugget (light BLRW) a few weeks ago. Here are pics from today.

    Hi! I would say they are both hens because they have no comb and tiny wattles. It would be awesome if one were a rooster so they could have chickies. They're cute though.[​IMG]

    oh! also.... what does BLRW mean?

    Blue Laced Red Wyandotte. They are beautiful but little monsters! [​IMG]
    That breed actually has a pea comb, so whether they are roos or hens, the comb will look like that.

    Nugget looks like a roo and hotwings a pullet. Look at the feathers on the neck, doesn't nuggets look more pointy to you? Also from the pics his comb/wattle look much pinker than hot wings. I could be wrong but that is what it looks like from the pics.

    [​IMG] No!!! I don't want anymore roos! [​IMG]

    Sigh... Well... I guess I could talk the DH into making another coop....
    The funny this is that Nugget acts so pullet-ish. And then Hotwing responds to Kip (the roo) cooing when he finds a treat.

    I could be completly wrong, does he have saddle feathers? COuld you maybe get a full pick of him so that I can see the tail?

    I read that as well about the feathers around the neck being a determining factor. Sorry, but they are both beautiful!
