    I'm assuming this is my silver laced wyandotte. it is 6 weeks old. not a big comb but some red around the head is freaking me out. any chance she is a roo?

    Looks like my SLW pullet did at that age.

    My SLW pullet looked like this also! The red comb freaked me out too, but she is a girl.

    It is a pullet. The males have a different color pattern.

    Quote:I have one that is six weeks and looks just like this plus another one that has a little more white on her/him. How does the coloring differ between males and females at this age?

    From what I have heard the roos are more white with balck highlights and the pullets are more black with white highlights. no expert here.

    Quote:Thank you for posting this pic of your SLW, nittanyxi. I've been poring over all the SLW gender posts and watching my two with bated breath. They are the same age as yours and the answers to your gender question give me hope! Their combs and wattles look just like yours and hopefully they are pullets like yours is!

    As the mama of two SLW cockerels, I vote pullet.
