    These chicks are a little over 2 weeks old -- but one already has a red comb -- and acts very assertively. is he a roo?

    I've never uploaded pictures before -- so I hope these come through. apologies if I've goofed.

    And he seems to have longer legs -- don't know if that means anything!

    Most likely yes. That's a pretty thick comb and legs.

    I have a 3 week old SLW that I am wondering about too and souns similar to yours [​IMG] Her/his comb just turned red and the legs are a lot darker then my other SLW whom has very yellow legs and a yellow(ish) comb.

    Here is a pic, you can see the difference. I'm thinking I've got a pair??

    Quote:Yes, I think so! My Wyandotte is extremely friendly! I'd love to have a silver laced one, they are so beautiful!
