    I have 4 SLW - and I have been unsure on their gender since day 1. I thought I would post two of them here and see if you could help me identify their gender - then perhaps I can figure out the other two. They are 11 weeks and hatchery birds. I have searched pullet/Cockrell photos of these guys for weeks and honestly they all seem to have features of both pullet and Cockrell so .....:confused:

    This is "shrimp" for lack of a better name idenitfyer:

    I think you have to pullets with funky feathering :)

    My BLRW at about the same age. These guys are cockerels. You can see their combs and wattles look much bigger than your youngsters.

    One on the right is a pullet. Her wattles are much smaller than the others.
