    My chicks(I still call them that) are over almost 3 months old now! I finally figured out what breeds they all were now I need to figure out who is a roo and who is a pullet!

    These are my 2 RIR. I think they are both pullets, but I'd like to have other opinions.

    This is Dolly Parton. She's my Black Austrolorpe. I'm almost posative she's a pullet.

    Finally this is Collin. My SLW. I'm thinkin roo, but I'm dumbfounded on his real gender?

    The bottom picture does indeed make the Wyandotte appear to have much more wattle and comb. Good news is the males do feather in w/ a whole lot more white on their wings so you shall soon know for sure.

    I definitely think you have all pullets, except for collin. His comb and waddles are much more red, than the others.

    Thanks. I'm really hoping That Collin is a pullet. I will have to rehome him if it is a roo though. [​IMG]

    My SLW "pullet" has similar red wattle and comb so we'll see. If you look at pictures on www.feathersite.com the pics of SLW pullets show a pretty red comb and wattle too. well, back to waiting for an egg or a crow [​IMG]

    Update about my SLW. Rooster all the way. So my final vote is that your SLW is also a roo.

    My vote for Collin is a roo. The pullets would have a comb like that, too, but the redness is throwing up a flag for me.
