    I have 4 SLW and I am wondering if anyone has images they can post at around 5 weeks old? Mine all are starting to get red combs and at this age I am not sure if that is normal for a pullet or not. I had "ordered" 3 pullets and 1 cockerel.

    Is there any other coloring characteristics of a pullet v's a cockerel?

    Thanks! Mine all look pretty much like yours- except I cant totally see your combs- they are more side views.

    I thought I had read something out cockerels not having as much white? Do you know- or did I never read that?? I am not sure. Mine mostly look like Flossie.

    Hope this helps.
    I have been wrong so many times about early sexing via comb or color that i give up [​IMG] I will wait til we get a gargeled crow or an egg [​IMG]
