    im kinda hoping 'trevor' is a he lol

    I helped him out of his shell on 16th march (my birthday) after he'd struggled for 27 hours and was the only egg from 6 (posted) to hatch.

    So he is now 12 weeks old but is he a he or she? I'm leaning toward He

    You can't tell from that picture. Male SLWs have very black hackles and silver wingbows, not the pretty lacing of the females. They look very different from each other once their baby plumage is gone.


    These are SLW pullets at that same age from my original flock:
