    this is sugar - already has a super reddish comb area and thicker legs than maple, hatched the same afternoon. his color is VERY silver.

    this is maple - much darker and has a very pale comb area, also much more skittish than sugar.

    does anyone find these birds to be less assertive or aggressive than rhode island reds?

    I have had 3 SLW's and all have been skittish compared to other breeds I have had.My little 12w hen I have right now runs like the wind as soon as she see's anyone come into the coop, and I spent lots of time raising her by hand.
    I would say sugar may be a roo being red in the comb already, but maple is a girly girl.
