    I have 2 slw that are about 10 weeks old, I need some help determining if they are cockerels or pullets. This is the bigger of the 2. [​IMG]

    I agree with sunshine0235, but pic 2 might be a fast developing pullet! 1 is definitely a cockerel!

    Thanks much! I am desperately hoping for at least 1 pullet. I love this breed and these are the only slw I have, but if they are both roos they're gonna have to go and I want to keep them!

    I got to see the rooster these 2 came from and he was absolutely huge!! Beautiful but really the biggest rooster I have ever seen.
