    I have a 7 wk slw, I'm a bit suspicious. Their spurs are non existent, but their tail and legs are rather big. She does have rounded feathers though.

    I say pullet, but I would give it a few weeks. Also spurs are not used to indicate gender since roosters and hens have them.

    Based on those pics? I'd say pullet. Post pics back in 3-4 weeks to know for sure.

    Thinking cockerel, but please update. Spurs don't matter, especially at this age. Male feathering - the pointy hackle, saddle and sickle feathers don't start to come in until 10-12 weeks old,
