    Could you take a look at these chicks and let me know if you think they're boys or girls (feed store sold them as pullets, but 1 out of 10...).

    The first is an EE (about 7 weeks old) and the second is an SLW (about 6 weeks old). I also am posting a picture of our two SLWs side by side. The one with the redder comb/waddles is a bit more aggressive.

    It may be too early to tell, but I was trying to look at saddle feathers to determine.

    Thanks.

    Your EE is a pullet, and you have 1 cockerel and 1 pullet out of your SLW's [​IMG]

    That SLW rooster is going to be beautiful. Too bad we can't keep him here in Phoenix city limits.

    Should we wait to find him an adoptive family until he crows, or is it better to part ways now? I guess that's personal preference, but would take any advice anyone has.
