    Hello! I'm new and would love some feedback. I'm relatively newer to raising chickens and I have 2 slw that are about 2 1/2 months old now. I'm hoping they are pullets but I just can't tell, they both look just alike except one is slightly bigger than the other. Can anyone tell by these pics what they look to be?? [​IMG][/IMG]

    I was afraid he was! I have 2 and I was hoping for at least 1 pullet, it was super hard to get a pic of them separately. So what says to you cockerel so I can try and compare to the other one?? Like I said this is new to me so trying to learn as much as I can!

    Hello there and welcome to BYC! [​IMG]

    Hard to tell but yes, you definitely have one cockerel there. You can post pics in our What Gender section. Mountain Peeps has left you with the link.

    Enjoy your cutie pies and welcome to our flock!

    I can tell because of how big and red his comb and wattles are. Females wouldn't be this red until around 15 weeks and up. There is still a chance he is a she though!

    Thanks so much for the input!!! Yes I absolutely lobe wd's I believe they are my favorite! I was hoping these were pullets since I already have 2 bantam roosters and I don't want to have to many. I also have a rlw hen who is absolutely beautiful but she isn't the nicest temperament wise.
