Is this SLW a pullet or a cockerel?

    We bought our two SLW "girls" around the same time. Well, one is starting to look not as "girly" as the other. Hoping they're both females, would love some input. Thanks.

    This is Jenny, our "girl." The one we are wondering about.

    Your SLW looks nothing like mine when it was young, I think it could be a mix.

    I was wondering why she looked different. I know they all don't look the same, but Lollie has the "laced" look to her more than "Jenny."

    Agreed. They can look different if they are from a hatchery-the lacing isn't always to the APA standard.

    Thanks everyone for the reply. I guess we will just wait and see if he can behave or not. ;)
