    Because i keep getting differing views..
    I only have one so i cant compare and theres a very small red comb appearing very slowly..
    No spurs on his/her leg either.. or loud or unusual chirping.

    any experianced brains out there?

    the edge of insanity
    Take a peek at the forum 'what breed is this' and look for silvers. That might help. I have slw and *think* I have 4 roos in my 7 'pullets' group. I'm waiting until the rooster crows, but I'm not happy. But, it may make winter a little better. No one is crowing yet, but ... here is a comparison of two of my 4 wk old SLW. I think the one on the left is a roo and the pullet on the right. HTH.. like I said though, the jury is still out... but I can't imagine there would be such a big difference between the two birds.
