    I have a total of 23 little ones, these 3 are the only ones in question right now. I was hoping for 1 oops rooster, but 3 may be a little much! [​IMG]

    One and two are roosters, the last pic looks like pullet.

    That is kind of what I suspected. But 3 was enough questionable I thought I would post! Lol!

    So now my question would be, which make better roosters? I had an EE rooster before and he was fantastic. Have never have Australop or SLW roo.

    Yes, I have a Australorp, but I do not have Silver Laced Wyandotte, thinking of getting a few more birds and SLW would be them.:D

    So, here is an update! ALL three are roosters and #3 is the dominant one! He started crowning first and has a large following. The other SLW started crowing, a tiny bit, but likes to hide while #3, he shows off anytime someone comes around. The BA, has not even tried. I think he is going to try to pretend he is a she as long as possible. I hope to be able to keep 2, but we will have to see. Thank you all for your help! :)
