    Okay these three SLW are about 12 weeks old. I think I have two girls and one boy in the middle. Her/his waddles are growing alittle faster. They all stand the same size. No spurrs growing. Can't tell by feathers yet. At least my new eyes can't. Give me your expertise eye.

    They all look like pullets to me, but of course the light one could possibly be a roo. Wait a little longer to be sure.

    I would love to have all pullets. My luck of geting roosters is high. Ussually if I get two chicks 1 will be a rooster and then when I have gotten 4 chickens..must have an even number thing... it was a 3 to 1 rooster to hen. So the moral is if you want roosters let me pick your chickens for you. I just can't have then where I live. I have been able to find good homes for them though. I will keep this one until I know for sure whether it be crowing or mounting his favorite hen. Thanks for you input.
