    I have a "boy" SLW and I'm wondering if it is normal for him to squat. When we go to pick him up or pet him he squats like our girls do. I'm pretty sure he is a he.

    I will get a picture of "him" in the morning. He has the different feathering than the other one I have that I am pretty sure is a girl. I think she is laying eggs so I know I have one girl SLW.

    So here is a picture of my "boy" that likes to squat when you go to pet him or pick him up. He is 22 weeks old.

    Well that explains everything. We thought she was a boy because she has less white than our other one.

    These SLW are great birds and a nice bonus finding out he's a she.
