    Looks like you have yourself a SLW cockerel.

    the 1st picture and 4th one is the same.
    2nd and 3rd is the same chicken. I am thinking the 1st and 4th picture is the rooster.....

    I have 2 8 week old SLW and they are supposed to be pullets. They look more like the chicken in pic 2. I think the first and third pic is a boy, but the other a girl. Are her waddles pink? Mine have a pink color to them, as well as some pink color around the eyes, but no comb yet. Sorry that you didn't get 2 girls.

    the waddle is almost red. I am hoping 1 is a rooster. I have 10 chicks total, I need at least one boy ;-)

    I am thinking the chick in the first picture is the boy, the waddles are red and his "top not" is redder than the other chicken.
