    My family of 4 named our flock of 4. The SLW on the right is named Pippa (the female version of Phillip). "She" got her tail feathers long after the rest of the flock and they've always been shorter than the others. Now, at nearly 7 weeks, her comb and wattle are coming in faster than the others. She also is more standoffish than the rest of the flock. We're wondering if we named her incorrectly. Is our Pippa actually a Phillip?

    They both look like roosters to me.
