    I have three SLW. Not sure what to make of them... I would guess they are about three months old. Do I have a hen and 2 roos??

    Roo?

    DO you think the one in the back of the 2nd pic is a hen? Or is it too blurry?

    The one in back looks like a hen to me but not a 1000 percent sure but it does look very girly from the angle check for hackle feathers.

    I had three silver-laced Wyandottes and had to get rid of one because, same thing.....comb got bigger, thicker and very red! We live close to other people and can't have crowing.....

    You might have more than 1 hen, but we need better pics to determine for sure.
