    Hi everyone,
    I picked up a straight run of SLW two weeks ago. Might be too soon to figure out their sex. I plan to update the thread with new pictures as they grow. Any input helps. Thanks!

    I think I see two potential roosters currently, and a single combed one.

    New photos. Group shots. I think I'm up to 5 cockerels and 1 pullet. She is standing on the brick Next to the mason jar and in the back in pic 2. All of the others seem to show cockerel features. Small tail, thick legs, and red/pink combs. Agree, disagree? I'm still new to chickens and slw seem harder to sex than other breeds.

    I see at least 3, maybe 4 cockerels including both of your single combed chicks. Wouldn't be surprised if you were right with 5.

    Photo update. The chicks are growing so fast. Next weekend they will be making the move to outside. Still thinking I have more Roos than hens but I think I'm only sure about one roo (#5)and one hen (#3).
