    Yep...regular lacing, looks like pullets. We ordered a SR of SLW and they are the same age as yours, and I was confused by what people were saying about "messy" lacing. Seeing my pullets and cockerels side by side sure cleared this up for me, as there is a clear difference in pattern at their age.
    (I have the opposite problem, my SR is cockerel heavy, 6 out of 10!)
