    I realize the are not 'what a SDW is supposed to look like', but that's why I wanted them. They are SDW and GDW and were the only two to look like this. All the others a a duckwing pattern. I know for sure that one is a rooster. He's pretty obvious, but the smaller one has me puzzled.... [​IMG]

    I'm not sure how old they are, but I know the one crows pretty well... I'm really thinking more and more that the other is a hen. When I was taking these pics I was thinking how much more 'feminine' this one is than the other.... Idk, what do you think??

    Do you have any idea of the approximate age? Depending on that, I am leaning towards pullet, but if it is younger than 15 weeks or so it has to be a cockerel with the comb and wattles that colour. It definitely looks more feminine than the other, but could be still be a cockerel.

    I'm about 99% sure it's a little hen :) after really observing behavior and looking closely at her in person and the pics. I've been calling it a her all day. So... Now if it's a boy it's going to be gender confused. It's okay we will still love (him/her) regardless of how (he/she) presents (his/her) self. Lmao
    I crack myself up
