    I hope I'm posting in the right place - My beautiful SLW is 6 mos old - I have thought all this time that she was a hen.....not so sure now. Can anybody tell me if this is a roo??

    Roo. Hens would be all silver laced, plus he has the pointy saddle feathers and all... He is very handsome [​IMG]

    I'm so sad - I have 2 and the other is def. a roo - I wanted a pair to breed. I have been able to sex all of my babies and so far have been correct - until now. Their coloring has been so different - my male has creamy coloration instead of the white and it also has a ton of green - even in the lacing. [​IMG] Thanks for the input.
